Asfar as I know Samsung's 960 series is supposed to be their m.2 version of their 860 SSD's
Then I looked around and came across this - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147675&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC-_-pla-_-Solid+State+Disk-_-N82E16820147675&gclid=CjwKCAjwwuvWBRBZEiwALXqjw7Qtz5V3zMLEdMNFdMvL1USMbP85j1wdR3kMnx9gb3HPRwecs-UwtRoCY1MQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
An m.2 marked as an "860"
what.....? Can someone help me understand?
No its not a scam: https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-860-evo-m-2-sata-250gb-mz-n6e250bw/
M.2 is just the form factor like a 2.5" drive.
960 is an nvme based M.2.
The 860 evo is sata based and comes in 2.5" or M.2 drives.
Oh... So 960 would be the obvious choice for m.2 as it uses the nvme interface, right
Only if you need NVMe speeds, which most people don't.
I'm running servers, with thousands of player folders, which in those folders have about 7 folders each with a ton of tiny files.
I am running a MySQL server that has a multitude of databases, each with tiny entries on each column and row
I think NVMe's interface would be a good bottle-neck reliever in my situation.
