    What happened? When did the PRO series basically became an EVO?
    ## VGA ##
    AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
    Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

      Although I didn't see a price rundown I would imagine the Sabrent is the best bang for the buck by far as well as taking the geometric mean crown. Well done Sabrent!

        How does it manage to be worse at SQL than its own last gen?

          For me this can't be possible. Everything points to 980 pro must be better then 970 evo in every point

            To get the max performance on these drives of "up to" 1 million iops read/write, you need to use a small lba range on the drive to stay within the limits of the intelligent cache.

              I am not sure whether this review can be trusted. There is a very unusual variation in the measured numbers.

                You don't say you need to introduce short stroking for SSDs? That was a thing for HDDs only, I thought. :-O

                  Just a note: 250 GB SSDs can be much slower than 500+ GB SSDs. The article is using a wide range of capacities: 250, 500, 1000 and 2000 GB.

                    Guessing there are some firmware woes with the 980 PRO under Linux but haven't yet seen anything to confirm that.
