Storage speed differences made real
If you pay attention to computer hardware, it’s obvious that NVMe rules the roost. All the benchmarks back this up, but seeing it on a chart doesn’t really have the same impact as seeing it. Which is why I really like the video that Techspot did highlighting the differences. It does get a little repetitive, so it’s OK to just watch the first few clips. There won’t be a test after.
To test and visualize how storage performance impacts the user experience in real world scenarios we have recorded how quickly our Core i7-6700K test system completes various tasks using Samsung’s new 960 Evo 500GB SSD. Those findings will be compared with results from the Crucial MX300, an affordable TLC-based SATA SSD as well as a WD Red Pro 4TB mechanical hard drive.
