    These SSDs are awesome thanks to their MLC NAND, they still perform today, as they did when I first bought them.

    I've written 31TB to each of so far while on RAID 0


    When they were brand new:

    lets just hope that we will still have the option to choose MLC drives in the future :p im worried that with the advent of QLC, TLC will be the new "performance standard" with QLC for budget storage *rolleyes*

    in any case, QLC actually IS quite interesting for mass storage / archivation purposes and I could imagine myself getting a large QLC SSD for media stuff instead of the usual HDD :)

    Phoenix, I thought R/W speeds will be beyond 5GB/s on RAID. I saw AMD TR on RAIDed 960 PRO was able to reach 6GB Reads and 5.xGB/s.
    Does iGPU and dGPU influence SSD scores while benching?

    throughput on laptop systems is always lower than on comparable desktops, even when we talk high end DTR. that, plus software raid solution vs. TR going straight through the CPU could be another factor. in any case, at those levels i dont think itll make a difference to have either 3GB/s or 5GB/s throughput :D what matters most is 4K speeds and those are excellent in @Phoenix `s case ;)

    So which 4k workloads actually say about drive perf? 4k Q8T8 or 4k Q32T1?

    4k Q1T1 are the most important in everyday usage, Q8T8 are somewhat important and Q32T1 are very seldom found in regular user behaviour. that goes more into server / databank / professional territory.

    And most part of the written 31TB is probably different, + same OS Builds and several formats:D MLC Nand FTW:p

    yeah i was thinking along those lines as well *lol* ive had my 1tb 850 pro for 3.5 years now and just broke 27 TB in writes. 6.5 years and 273 TB of warranty left :D

    Tell me one thing, I'm confused regarding SSD warranty, does this depend on actual time period or just TBW?
    Because if I complete 5 yr warranty of 850 evo with 20TB of writes and there's ton of endurance left to reach to 70TBW, will that ensure I'm covered by warranty by seeing TBW solely?

    its both. manufacturers publish a time span and TBW that are covered under warranty. whichever limit you reach first, counts. so if you reach 70 TBW first before 5yr are over, warranty is out. on the other hand, once 5 yr run out before 70 TBW are reached, your warranty is out, as well :)
