Samsung quoted 2-3X faster random read and write 4k speeds with nvme, which would be biggest noticeable increase in normal 24/7 computer use since intel came out with x25m. The limiting factor on all current drives is parallelism at small 4k random read/write. Which is why Samsung wanted to push nvme out the door, but likely got held back from oem builder concerns about compatibility issues.

It isnt the sequential speeds, those are so blazing fast on sm951 that increasing them some more isnt going to be that noticable in current normal use.

One quick question:
I'm running X79 Asus MBO (so, M.2 is not an option) - if I were to stick SM951 to PCIe adapter and plug it in like that, would there be any issues (slower speeds, for example, or whatever else)?
Would that even work?

If the answer is "go for it!", can someone suggest which adapter to buy?
Thanks!

Anybody have a non levono sm951 (samsung branded) booting on a desktop rig?

I will contact AsRock tomorrow.

I am in the same boat. Installed Windows 8 no problem to the SM951 but cannot boot. I have the Fatal1ty version of the x99x killer.

Too bad. Was hoping to play with it. Kindly please PM me if Asrock hooks you up with a solution!

I tried all the beta bios. 1.55 will not boot either. There is a 1.74 bios in the beta but it does not flash when I try quick flash. I sent a message is to as rock. This can't be that hard for them to fix as it recognizes the drive and Windows installs on it just fine....

I see The asrock x99 pro has a new bios update. Good Chance that will work.

Update: The SM951 will now boot on the Asrock X99 Professional. The latest bios version 1.6 does the trick!

Hello

I tested a SM951 256GB of a friend (I have not received mine mad.gif) on Windows 7
Is that with Windows 8.1, the performance would be better?

The driver (controller) in Windows 7 is msachi.inf and with Windows 8.1 is storachi.inf (which will be better?)
I find that 4K-QD32 (Crystal Disk Mark) and 4k-64 (AS SSD) under Windows 7, the performance is much lower compared to the SM951 512GB under Windows 8.1

Thanks smile.gif

Those who have a SM951 256GB (under Windows 8.1 or 10), you can put your screens of Crystal Disk Mark and AS SSD

Thanks so much thumb.gif
