2TB M.2 NVMe Shootout - Intel 660P vs Corsair MP510

Up Close

Nobody will ever accuse storage drives of being the most interesting things to look at, but even still there are a couple of points to note with the Intel and Corsair options we have today. The low pricing of the Intel probably gives itself away most in the use of a green PCB. We're not party to the inner workings of PCB wholesalers but we can't imagine that a black PCB costs a significant amount more than a green one, yet as you can see from the Corsair MP510 it makes a big difference both to the looks and usefulness of the drive. After all, the green Intel 660P will stand out like a sore thumb on any of our modern monochrome motherboards, yet the Corsair will slide in without the need to cover it with a heat spreader. Either included with your motherboard or a third party option.

Nice comparo Tom! It would be nice to expand this in the future with more 2TB models as they arrive to market. A lot of us old dudes are chomping at the bit to have an all-NVME system (no more cables, WOOHOO). It would be awesome to see this testing expanded to include ADATA, WD, and maybe even some of the Chinesium cheapo brands (Sabrent, Silicon Power, etc). Lots of options for these things!Quote

Had a friend ask me about building a PC the other day and i auto told him to get a small SSD for OS and a game or 2 and then bulk up with an HDD. This ideal seems to have gone out of trend as quickly as it came in with the prices on SSD's nowadays.
Good to see value starting to make a come back on here. In most cases, you dont need that extra horse power from the samsung and unless you are moving entire drives of volume you're talking seconds in the time difference. and if your talking load times for games i expect the games code itself and your other hardware to be more of a bottleneck than the difference in the speed of these drives.
Nice to see this though, comparisons between these sort of drives are rare and normally benched against sata drives.Quote

While you don't need an SSD for all games, it does help in specific ones. It also helps with installing speeds too as games get bigger they take longer to install, waiting an hour for your HDD to install a game is annoying vs a few minutes with a SSDQuote

That 660P looks great for the price, just seen some 1TB ones for less than £100 online from some etailers, very tempting atmQuote
