    The Samsung 960 is newer then 950, yes, but most retailers are still carrying the 950 alongside it as a lower cost option.
    Um

    SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 512GB $257.99
    SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 500GB $259.75

    When comparing 256 GB drives, the 960 EVO is actually a lot cheaper..

      I like Samsung's 961, which should be just a tad below 960 Pro, but significantly cheaper.
      I'm thinking about Ryzen 7 combo with Asrock Taichi board, two 1 TB M.2 sticks in RAID0 as a block cache, 4x16GB RAM, some 4x10 TB HDD in RAID5 as working RAID and a bunch of 10TB drives as sort of archival storage on JBOD. And a nice Infiniband interface+ 10G Eth...

        You're comparing PROs and EVOs. Like for like @ 512GB (AU$):

        850 PRO (2.5") $337
        960 PRO (M.2) $449

          Yes, but the TLC NAND model is a perfectly viable option for consumers. MLC/Pro model's target audience is enterprise or those that need the extra reliability. Also keep in mind that having enough free space for wear leveling affects the drive more than MLC vs TLC.

            Samsung has bootable ISO images for firmware updates at this link: http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor...oad/tools.html

            I can't fault you for not seeing it because I was not able to navigate to it from Samsung's home page. I had to turn to Google.
            Getting you straight to the information you need on Samsung SSDs and technologies. (Driver, Magician, Migration, Firmware, Activation S/W)

              Prices at physical retailers may be much different than on teh internetz as they want to get rid of older stuff first, especially in IT products.

              Large online retailers won't care even if they had to nuke their whole stock of 950, so prices are handled differently.

                That's a lot of porn right there.

                  It's for noble goal. If some archeological expedition in distant future unearths my stash, how will they learn about our social life if not through BangBro's materials ? ;o)

                    Brane215 I am sorry but RAID5 with 10TB drives is useless. Search for "raid 5 is dead" to know why.

                      I'm running SQLite v3.16.2.

                      There are 3 disks on the computer: Samsung NVME SSD 960 EVO M.2, Samsung SSD 850 EVO and SanDisk Ultra II.
                      AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Eight-Core testing with a MSI B350 TOMAHAWK (MS-7A34) v1.0 and MSI AMD Radeon R9 285/380 4096MB on Ubuntu 17.10 via the Phoronix Test Suite.
                      Generated by Phoronix Test Suite v7.2.0 (Trysil) on 2017-06-17 08:13:37.

                      However only the result on the SanDisk (34.95) is shown.
