    No, they are too scarce to do that now. Newegg and Amazon will have them soon.

    Thanks. This helped a non gamer also. Was originally planning on getting a small Samsung 960 in a new purchase and a 1tb hdd. Now I will probably get an m.2 sata ssd and spend the savings on upgrading the hdd to an ssd
     
    Phoenix and hmscott like this.

    What wasn't definitive about this video? For gaming, yeah, as demonstrated in the initial video, for in-game loading, it's not actually that much data being read off of the drive, hence not really a noticeable performance difference. For everything else, there clearly is, as was demonstrated here, as has also been my experience. I imagine this is given the fact that the random read/write speeds are also significantly faster on NVMe drives, not just the sequential.

    The only further discussion I can see being about which specific applications would the results actually be the same for as opposed to most others where the NVMe interface would be faster. Anything I missed?
