Moving from SSD to PCIe NVME

I am currently using a Samsung Evo 860 and will be getting an ADATA X8200 1TB Pro very soon, would it be recommended to just clone the drive or will it take a performance hit ?

Cloning a drive has no impact on performance.

Just be aware that if you are intending to use the Samsung free cloning software the EVO needs to be installed in the system somewhere, not an external USB case. The samsung software searches for a valid samsung device beofre allowing you to fire it up and it does not recognise SSDs mounted by USB as legit.

In my experience -if we're talking about boot drives- I always do a fresh install.
It helps me make sure the drive is totally ok if I don't see any weird things happening during the install, and it also helps me clean out my windows installation. It's just my OCD.

Now, if they're not boot drives, cloning won't hurt a thing. Just make sure the partition is aligned.

you're not really upgrading from an SSD lol, an NVME drive is still an SSD.

unless your install is bloated and in need of a reinstall, just clone it.

Since it is from a Samsung boot drive to an ADATA drive, will samsungs clone software still work ?

Samsung doesn't have a cloning software monopoly, lol.

use Partition Wizard or EaseUS Partition Master, both can handle drive/partition cloning.

Should still work. It works well provided the samsung device is not connected by USB.

If it doesn't work, just download one of the free partition manager tools like suggested above.
