    My two main drives, the Samsung 970 EVO 1TB NVMe [C:] and the Corsair MP510 960GB NVMe [E:].

    I think the write performance of the Corsair is being hindered by it being almost full. It's exclusively used for games so write speeds are of very little concern anyway.

    Re: QOTW: How fast is the storage in your PC?

    Main PC has a couple of SSDs connected via SATA3 and a couple of HDs on SATA2. Laptop has a 970 EVO NVME and a SATA3 SSD. The difference in speed between the NVME and SATA SSDs isn't noticeable through normal use or gaming. Indeed, I use normal HDs on SATA2 for most games, World of Tanks(HD client) being an exception that really benefits from being installed on a SSD.

    Don't waste your time running benchmarks on storage.

    Do you mind if I turn that right back around at you and tell you that it is in fact you that has wasted your time. You have just explained that NVMe drives are faster than SATA 3 drives, but the difference isn't noticeable, and that HDDs are slower again, in a thread that has been started with the sole aim of finding out who has the fastest storage.

    There is only one way of finding out who has the fastest storage - benchmarks.

    Both drives are approximately a month in use (new build).

    Benchmarks to provide some evidence of this? I've gone from 4 x SATA SSDs running in Raid 0, to two single NVMe drives (OS/Games). Everything from starting my PC to loading games to level loading has noticeably improved using NVMe drives.

    Lets see who tops the charts... well it's not going to be those of us using sata ssd's is it...even though they're more than fast enough for day to day use.

    Re: QOTW: How fast is the storage in your PC?

    Don't know who has the fastest storage, but it won't be me.

    I judge storage speed according to whether it meets my needs .... and it does.

    Most here probably have faster, even much faster, storage than me, but then, different needs too.

    Benchmarks are relevant if, IMHO, you aren't happy with what you hsve, want to change and want to know what to change to. I'm not looking to change badly enough to be prepared to pay to do so, so short of Santa Claus giving me something, it matters not.

    This is my Optane 900p, empty because i'm too lazy to reinstall windows in there
    One is the score that matters most for OS drive and you can guess which one.

    Samsung 970 evo nvme. Two drives on the disk, the latter being the OS - which is gives a lower score on the read for some reason (anywhere between 2500 and this as the highest).
