    As far as I know, Intel 750 series are the only U.2 drives in existence?

    Real world performance wise they are getting wrecked by pretty much everything else it seems though.

    The Intel drives a very good, much higher IOPS than the Samsung, I have been using an Intel 750 pcie drive and Samsung 950Pro, neither have disappointed me in any way, they are different but both very good drives, depending on what you use your pc for chances are you won't be able to tell the difference, once you are over with running bencharks to marvel at the speed and forget about them being in there

    Hardly:

    As usual, differences in the application load times of the various drives are minimal. We're talking about a few tenths of a second separating the slowest drives from the fastest. No point declaring winners and losers here. It's a relief to see our two budget drives keep up with the rest of the pack. Let's take a look at in-game performance next.

    Nice to have a realist response.

    Unless you run a server with high request loads to pack up that queue, or are running a diskmark program,
    you wont be seeing a difference between a 0.30ct/GB Samsung 850 Evo and a 0.97ct/GB Intel 750.
    Even a hardcore gamer or professional video editor will be hard pressed to justify paying triple price.
    Like you said, Intel is all about the IOPS.

    Id love to see what they will do in a sustained real world read/write test though.
    And no clinical synthetic benchmark programs, those almost never match up to real use.
    Just timing what it takes to read/write a +20gb file from/to a RAM drive in windows 10.

    Maybe I could still consider a cheap mini M.2 drive, just to have OS booting from a dedicated drive?
    The small ones tend to not get so hot, plus aren't the small ones usually a bit quicker, too?
    Just trying to think of a viable use for that M.2 bay..

    If that's the rationale (which is one I subscribe to, actually), pick a SATA SSD and leave the M.2 port alone.

    Seems like every formula that is released has some sort of design flaw whether it be as small an issue as no access to the coin battery or barbs for watercooling the chipset. Then what was it, oh the heat sink blocked the card adapter so you could only use a small 2240 or 2260 which I believe barely even existed if at all.
    Not sure what it was on the VIII but I'm guessing there was something.
    Now we have the IX and I'm concerned about getting a Samsung 960 PRO 512gb cause I don't want to worry bout it overheating/throttling.
    Asus could have very easily worked on a solution for these motherboards to keep the drive cool but to my knowledge havent.
    Do they just expect us to use the second M 2 vertical slot instead of the main one? If so what are the disadvantages to doing so?
