Should Intel SSDs avoided looks like one model is cheaper than Samsung?
I use one of their Optane drives and it flies. Not a regular SSD but either way, haven't heard bad stuff about Intel. Could check reviews...
Every model is cheaper than Samsung!
I try search reviews. and i ask here becouse there is people who understand music use with many tests dont count many tests are for graphics and reqular uses and gaming but not music.
the reviews are good for questions like reliability, stability.
I have never used an SSD that did not perform well. The PCIe-based ones are the fastest but that is for other reasons. I have a collection -- OCZ, Intel, mostly Samsung.
FWIW, I have two Intel 700 series enterprise SSDs and they are rock solid. Also, in general, Intel SSDs get good marks in tests/reliability.
SSDs or HDDs don't care about what type of work you're doing. They are just reading and writing data, and those figures are also tested. You will want the best possible IOPS and random reads figures possible for DFD streaming.
Reading tecnical data is not my best skill even i made programs. and if get enregy i do more.
It's simple. IOPS: larger = better. Random read figures: larger = better.
Okay, but I - and apparently John - will argue that the specs are much ado about not much.
We're just streaming samples!
Intel was my first SSD because they had a 5yr. warranty. Warranties are always a major factor for me.
They are a good indication of the quality, but in my mind that only goes so far - i.e. a 10-year warranty isn't much better than a 5-year one, but a 3-year one is a lot better than a 1-year one.
