Samsung PRO 980 1TB NVMe is working flawlessly
« on: March 02, 2021, 06:40:43 am »
I have been waiting for Samsung PRO 980 for quite awhile. Last week I replaced my old 950 with the 1TB 980 PRO.

The performance is quite decent, I do a simple dd test for a 3GB file, the avg write speed is 5Gb/s and read speed is ranging from 6.1 to 6.5Gb/s.

TRIM is also enabled on my end without any issue at all.

I have updated the wiki.raptorcs.com, so if you are looking for new NVMe, you could have confidence that Samsung PRO 980 is fully compatbile

Great, too bad there are no more PCIe ports on the Blackbird otherwise I would have mounted it myself. In any case, I am also satisfied with the SATA devices at the end but I hope that the next Raptor motherboard is in ATX format deriving from the Condor, a card that is now done and over and that I do not think will be lost and that they can reuse for another processor. They will also be able to implement dedicated NVme ports if they want ...

They'd still need PHBs to attach them to, and there is only a fixed number of PCIe lanes per processor. If you want oodles of NVMe, the big T2 (with both CPU sockets populated) is really your only option; everything else is a tradeoff. This T2 has two NVMe devices, plus video card, SATA (for the optical drives) and FireWire.
