    Default Which of these SSD's is the better one ?

    I just build a new pc but it still needs a good SSD I wanted to buy an intel 750. But now I saw today that Samsung also has a newer SSD which has more GB and cost less but it has lower IOps stats, the reading and writing is a little better also.

    Intel® SSD 750 Series (400GB, 1/2 Height PCIe 3.0, 20nm, MLC) Specifications
    Samsung SSD 850 PRO Specifications | Samsung SSD

    Here are the specs of the two compared: Comparison table | Hardware.Info United States

    I should probably wait till the Samsung is actually available and both are benchmarked, but your opinion can't hurt.

    Hmmm I found this about it: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answer...-nvme-ssd.html

    I just purchased an 850 for my laptop and like it. Fozzy is a fan of the Intels.

    Random echoed what my first thoughts on this were - if you don't care about price, the Intel is going to be better in performance. If you want to spend less money, go with the Samsung (I paid $80 USD for 512). But you won't notice a huge difference with HM2, or most likely a lot of other programs.

    I also passed this thread along to Patvs to see if he has any thoughts. He keeps up to date on a lot of specific hardware more than I do.

    Samsung outperforms Intel in most benchmarks.

    Key is:
    -don't focus on the advertised sequential read/write speeds.
    -look for a proper IOps (or 4K read/write speed) benchmark test.
    -if the speeds are very similar, go for cheapest $/GB

    What is more important 4k read or write when working with a big base (filtering, etc)? Random Performance - The Samsung 950 Pro PCIe SSD Review (256GB and 512GB) intel is better in writing, 950 pro in reading.

    The faster write speed will help with importing a large amount of hands. Reading will be better while pulling the data.

    I really don't think you would notice that much of a difference.
