    RVE And Samsung 950 Pro Results/Benchmark

    Hello fellas,

    Just got the Samsung 950 Pro on the RVE and what can i say besides, GOD DAMN THIS IS FAST. First of all, i must say that the installation went VERY smoothly, for those of you concerned with compatibility, it was a hassle free experience. Note that i have the most recent bios version which is 17** and i have manually set the bottom pcie to m.2 (don't like leaving things to auto). I installed it, booted, bios detected it straight away. Now in windows, windows 7 pro, detected it too, no problems there. I just had to go to disk management and initialize the disk (like any other). Also NOTE that you MUST install samsung's nvme drivers (which i did) for performance. So here is the performance test that i have done using ATTO benchmark. I know it might not be the best tool to bench a SSD but it is the only tool i know. IF any of you would like me to bench the 950pro on another program, feel free to ask and point me which soft you would like me to use.

    So for the comparison, i've used an old Crucial MX100 512gb vs Samsun 950 Pro. I'm only going to post the biggest numbers since it's easier and i'll also upload the picture so you guys can see for yourself how the drive performs vs a standard SATA3 ssd.

    Crucial MX100 512gb ***MAX WRITE SPEED*** : 509,807 mb/sec
    Crucial MX100 512gb ***MAX READ SPEED *** : 547 827 mb/sec

    Samsung 950 Pro ***MAX WRITE SPEED*** : 1,556,147 mb/sec
    Samsung 950 Pro ***MAX READ SPEED *** : 2,604,224 mb/sec

    SOOOOOOooo, as you can see, Samsung just opened a can of WHOOP-ASS .

    Or get yourself a Comay BladeDrive E28 PCIe SSD (big brother of the G.Skill Phoenix Blade). Ultimate performance.

    Or get yourself two (or more) Samsung 950 PRO SATA SSD units in a striped RAID. Faster performance, lower cost.

    Have you experienced any thermal throttling yet? According to Puget Systems it gets very hot.

    I dont think i have. Im sure im not running a load on that drive anywhere close to what they show in their testing.

    It won't get too hot if you have good chassis cooling. That Puget Systems review doesn't specify what they used for their test platform, chances are it was an open bench system with a minimal or "average" hardware loadout. The other review sites it links to didn't specify enough of these details either.

    This drive would usually be plugged into the bottom slot areas of a consumer mobo, right above the PSU in many cases, and it won't get a lot of cooling airflow unless an above-mounted GPU fan is sucking some big air off it. A PCIe-slot exhaust fan or mounting accessory (like any of these) might help a lot. Mounting a big metal heatsink plate on top of it might help a lot. Installing more chassis fans (mainly front and bottom intake fans) or some air ducting/compartments could eliminate dead air spots at the bottom of the chassis.

    Hey,

    Well first, my case's ventilation has a nice airflow and second, i don't see how you could get a thermal throttle by only gaming or watching movies etc. Could they've over-benched ?

    I'm not sure, I'm just wondering since I'm also really interested in this product.

    Hey,

    Well as of right now i've been using it instensively (resintalling games) over 200gb and it is INDEED hot, but not THAT hot to cause throttling. I think it's a damn fine product if you ask me.

    Dimensions (Samsung spec) are 80.15 x 22.15 x 2.38 (mm).

    Some of these heatsinks would work nicely, though you'd have to place several (up to 4) of them onto the Samsung. They could be affixed with any thermally conductive adhesive (like this one). Yeah, it's no superior-performing TIM but it would still improve thermal dissipation surface area tenfold and knock temps down significantly, especially if any gentle breeze blows across the component.

    I'm a little surprised that Samsung doesn't equip this unit with a heatsink (see upcoming Samsung NVMe products), but apparently they weren't especially concerned about this NV density running too hot (and the device still has a respectable 5-year warranty).
