[TPU] Samsung Announces the 950 PRO Consumer M.2 PCIe SSD - Page 8

post #71 of 438
I had no idea M.2 drives ran so hot!

Isn't it silly to have something dissipating so much heat next to your GPU and CPU?

especially if it's write performance which is insane rather than read performance (which would be executing programs, booting to windows, etc.)

Did I get this right?

Intel have a minimum requirement of air flow over the Intel 750 due to heat.
100LFM for the 400GB and 300LFM for the 1200GB version biggrin.gif

Intel 750 draw up to 22W for the 1200GB and 12W for the 400GB.
Samsung 950 Pro 256GB only draw up to 6.4W and 512GB 7W.
Thats a huge difference in efficiency and heat output.

So Samsung have a lot better controller and use better memory than Intel. Which is why I`d pick 950 Pro over 750.

Exactly what I asked for. Once prices go down I'm grabbing one.

I were looking to get my self a SM951, and I heard months back that Samsung were intending to make something like this, but they never gave an exact day. I was so happy when I saw this announcement, as I need a new storage device soon, that has POWAR!

Is the problem Samsung had with read slowdowns on the 850 long gone? I don't want to spend $400 on a drive that will be half as fast 6 months later.
