Samsung SZ985 vs Optane P4800X!

Here's a little of this story that might open some eyes...competition is a wonderful thing!


"The Samsung drive has a higher random read IOPS rating than the P4800X, but it has an even larger advantage in random write IOPS, which is emphasised in the sequential read/write bandwidth numbers where it is two and a half to three times better."

Re: Samsung SZ985 vs Optane P4800X!

Always something better. Next is 8X SSD's to handle the increased data speed. I am still not feeling any difference with my 900P over the 750 on the desktop and quite frankly I am only keeping it because it is cool looking and black. I prefer the 750 1.2TB though but the 480GB should suffice as well.

The Sammy drive looks good but you know I am surprised at Samsung how they screwed up Magician for me going over 2 yrs ago. Never I could never get the latest version to work right. Tried several times.

Your right Sandog the next big step will be 8X, I'm on the fence if I will get Optane or a 960Pro 1 TB for less money...I have time for that upgrade, after the first of the year. For some reason I haven't had any problems with Magician, but I don't use it very often. Did you see my post on the 7820X sale I found?

I guessed Sammy would be right around the corner. Never guessed it would be this fast!

Re: Samsung SZ985 vs Optane P4800X!

Along the lines of the Magician Software. The version I run is a bit more slick than what I remember of a few years back. Had no troubles with it at all. Gives good performance numbers so I like it.

Data Migration software is not too shabby either. After the migration I only needed to make some very minor adjustments. Sammy is getting it together with their software it looks like!

Mine would not even install right I believe. It was when I went to Windows 10 a long time ago. With Win8 it worked fine. Also, Samsung does not even list the version any longer.

Hey Jim, I was talking about on Samsung's download site. It just says Magician. I can't tell if they ever have a new version.
