Really? Right click on your drive, select properties, click on tools menu, click on optimize, highlight your drive and select optimize.

Then I noticed the update for RST which benefits me because of my RAID arrays. Afterwards i benchmarked the arrays and saw a modest improvement. For grins I decided to test the 960 again. What is odd is that the results are very close to the results I had prior to the last firmware update which caused a performance hit.

Before and after the last firmware update


Todays results

The Samsung nvme drivers are much much better than the Windows 10 ones. . My write speeds crawled until I installed them.

I currently run an 850 pro boot drive/primary programs setup, with an HDD as storage for files. I'm thinking about upgrading my boot/programs drive to a 250GB 960 evo, and ditching my TB HDD for 500GB sata based SSD. For the sake of speed, is it worth having a pcie based SSD for the OS and primary programs (photoshop, illustrator, revit, etc...), or would it be more prudent to get a larger pcie SSD for file storage/scratch disk?

To explain my current setup in a little more detail:

- OS/programs drive = Samsung 850 Pro 128 GB
- Game/secondary programs = OCZ 460A 240GB
- Documents/filestorage/scratch disk = 1TB WD Blue HDD

Would a normal SSD be enough of an improvement for a scratch disk over a traditional HDD to not even warrant a pcie based drive? Some images and files I work with are over 10 mega pixels, and I may be editing/combing multiple images at once time in photoshop, illustrator and so on.

The best option would be to get the largest SSD you can afford. From my experience Windows sucks when you use multiple drives to run programs. If possible use one SSD for Windows and your programs and use your other drives for secondary storage. If your concerned about space a good second option would be to put Windows and all your programs on your primary SSD and use a second SSD for your Library files. IE Documents, pictures, music, videos and download folder.

Might I suggest you use a 3rd drive for backup files and drivers.

In my system my 1TB 960 pro has my OS, programs and libraries. A 512GB SM951 with copies of all my software, drivers, and libraries. A 3rd 512GB SM951 which serves as a cache drive for my RAID arrays and windows backup drive. A 12TB RAID 0 array, and a 8 TB RAID 10 array which are used for video editing.

Going by what you said, I think a primary 500gb pcie ssd and 500gb sata based ssd would probably be the most affordable well rounded combo. Is there a big difference between the 960 evo and pro in terms of endurance?

Thanks!

For normal use I doubt it. Samsung SSD's are reliable and I have never had one die on me.

Are these scores normal for a 960 evo 500gb? Or should I RMA?

Looks good! Tho the 4k Q32 looks a bit low. Do you have windows power plan set to performance mode when you ran this?
