Mushkin Hyperion M.2 is NVMe and said to reach 2.8GB/s read and 350K IOPS, not to mention will come in 1tb capacity unlike the Samsung 850 EVO m.2 which is limited to 512gb. Can't see anything else aside the Mushkin worth getting that's on the horizon.

Ya I just hope the Hyperion NVMe works with X99 and Haswell-E and doesn't take forever to launch.

This stinks. I want to built a new system in a month or two and it doesn't look like any decent M.2 drives will be out by then.

Over on another site, ssdreview.com I think, there are quite a few pcie 3.0 x 4 M.2 drives schedules to be unveiled at Computex in a couple months which makes sense since we already have 2 announced so far. Might be stuck reusing your old Hard Drive for a month or so once your build is done, that shouldn't be too bad.

RAMCity will have these soon, and they will give 3 years warrenty, if i remember correct.

for now this seems to one of the only places; they give 1 year warrenty:

Cheaper, but no stock:

Green for now, though the XP941 had a black version found in Macbook Air under a different name.

And it will likely get beat in 4k random read and write by Samsung 850, just like its predecessor the xp941 was beat by samsung 840. Just like intels top of line enterprise drives, are no better than consumers because the dont relieve the 4k bottleneck for most consumer use.

I was excited until they dropped nvme. With nvme, 2-3x faster random 4k read and write was promised because of lowered overhead of nvme. But massive increases in sequential read/write, without removing the bottleneck of random 4k speeds....not paying that kind of money for a benching toy.

Yes no NVME, a bit sad... though 256GB @1.7GB/s for ~250$ is good enough for me smile.gif

you have to install it in UEFI to use it as boot drive.

btw. Asus R5E will support NVME on it's onboard M.2 slot.

Yeah, I am really waiting for this one.

I absolutely love mushkin products and their customer service. thumb.gif

I would, but it's not NVMe and the drives get crazy, crazy hot during extended use. I'd wait until they either slap a heatsink on there of some sort or improve thermal performance.

The reviews out don't cover whether it has any improvements for gaming however, party foul on their part.

Interesting. I wasnt aware these had those hiccups. I had narrowed my list down to the two Samsungs because I figured that wouldnt happen; as I have heard of complaints of hiccups during gaming from owners of Crucial, San Disk, and other SSD manufacturers. So how much data is the SSD getting hit with in these bursts? The stats on these drives seemed like they were the best out there.

This is also the first Im hearing about the SM951. Is there a link for press release or a suggested article on this? I literally have the Newegg page open and was about to order the 850 right now. Maybe I should wait



^srsly, look at my screen grab, Newegg page open. I stopped and said "Let me check OCN one more time before I order this SSD"

Ahh, my other question about going SSD...

Am I going to have to add this to my loop? How hot do these things get?
