[Guru3D] Samsung 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD: SM961 Ships Next week - Page 5

post #41 of 190
I think I'll wait on the retail version.

The 950 Pro came with slightly improved speeds vs. the SM951. Thinking the retail version of the SM961 will be improved also.

Looks like these are sold out until at least October?

Going to install it in the M.2 slot on my x99. Eventually want to move it to a PCIE slot once an 3.0 x8 M.2 raid card comes out, then I can slap two of these together and almost saturate the x8 connection and have 2TB of high speed storage, kind of like what Intel did wit the 750 raid to make the new P3608 at 5,000MB/s 2,000MB/s.
Only this setup could be faster and thousands of dollars less.. Theoretically 6,400 MB/s* Read 3,600 Write*

PCIE 3.0 x8 7,877 MB/s Max
PCIE 3.0 x4 3,938 MB/s Max

Current setup is going to be:
PCIE x16 #1 -GTX 980 SC
PCIE N/A #2 -Empty
PCIE x16 #3 --GTX 980 SC
PCIE N/A #4 - Empty
M.2 3.0 x4 - SM961

Plan is to do the following, what do you guys think?
PCIE x8 #1 -Next next Gen Titan?
PCIE x8 #2 -Keep one 980 as PhysX?
PCIE x16 #3 -Next next Gen Titan?
PCIE x8 #4 - 2x SM961 Raid 0
M.2 2.0 x2 - Empty (With more than two PCIE used it drops the M.2 bandwidth to 1,000 MB/s mad.gif )

Current Storage:
x4 5TB Toshiba Raid 10 (10TB)
x2 1TB 850 Pro
x2 2TB Samsung (on internal USB headers)
M.2 has a x4 lane limit (one of the SSD editors at Tom's had told me this) if we go by the DMI 3.0's real world limit (DMI 3 is 4x 8GT/s), that's roughly 3.5GB/s. Not sure if direct to CPU would be faster, but it shouldn't be slower. When you change from Gbits to GBytes, you just divide by 8 and then implement the encoding (i think it's like 128/130), but the DMI probably has more overhead than straight PCI-E to the CPU.

Bench those babies! thumb.gif Are you going to RAID them? Need to know what I am getting myself into!

Pfft, have it on a server that's up 24/7 and boot your OS over IB.

Big note here if you plan on running RAID 0.

If your running a Z170 motherboard the max seq. reads you will see is around 3100-3300. That's the max the Z170 can handle. That was my max read running two 950 pro's in RAID 0. If you are buying two sm961's for raid 0 you maybe wasting your money. redface.gif
You will see double the write speed as that will be lower than 3300.

X99 here biggrin.gif does Z170 have that issue even if they get moved to the PCIE slots? I don't believe the X99 is limited as far as I know... But I only have one M.2 slot anyways, would have to wait for a PCIE 3.0 x8 Raid card to come out to take the full advantage of two or three of these... The wait begins..

I am not 100% sure with the X99. Never did a RAID 0 with M.2 as the X99 MOBO I used had a Ultra M.2 and Standard M.2 slot.

My thinking is with the extra PCIe lanes directly to the CPU( With a X99 MOBO) you will be able to RAID 0 two of these using an adapter card and plugging directly into a PCIe 3.0 with a least 4X lanes each. This may get you double the seq. reads going RAID0. This would be very interesting to see. Please try and run ATTO. Sounds fun to me. thumb.gif
