Best PCIe M.2 NVMe Solid State Drive (SSD) for 2017

By December 12, 2016 No Comments

Introduction

I can still remember the days when SSD was first released and the performance was astonishing, but it came with a hefty price tag. In more recent months the price of SSD has dropped, and companies are simply pursuing the fastest possible drives that they can create.

The first limitation that manufactures had to get away from was that of the SATA interface. Thus, they switched to developing drives that run on the PCIe slot, which has a significant amount of bandwidth in comparison with SATA.

If you are after the fastest performance possible, then you are going to need a NVMe SSD. So lets take a look at some of the products that are on the market!

Samsung 960 Pro Series

Samsung are one of the biggest names in the SSD market. Many users will recommend the 850/840 drives and they aren’t mistaken. Samsung develop some of the best SSD on the market and they entered the PCIe SSD market to bring that same performance to another level.

Intel 600p SSD

Intel, one of the oldest names in the SSD game has been building drives that offer incredible reliability whilst retaining remarkable performance for many years.

Patriot Hellfire

Known for creating RAM, they are a relatively new name on the SSD market. Whilst they might not have the same pedigree as some of the other companies on this list, they still develop some of the best products on the market.

 

Which NVMe SSD is Right for Me?

If you are still struggling to decide. We think that when it comes to the raw performance that this technology offers it is simply beneficial to go with the company that offers the best warranty. Most review websites will recommend the best blend of value, or performance, but let’s be real for a second.

Any of these SSD’s is going to utterly dominate anything you throw at it, so buy for the long game! Intel offer incredible warranty and reliability, as do Samsung.
