    Do NVMe SSD drives offer real world advantages over SATA3 SSD drives?

    Yes - sata3 is limted to 6GB/S NVMe is 16GB/s and higher IIRC
    if your doing a lot of reading from the disk then .... loads better

    possibly .. not sure on current speeds

    Those numbers aren't correct, though close on the SATA.

    SATA 3 is capable of 6Gbps (Gigabits per second, not Gigabytes per second.)
    NVMe is generally a 4x connection, with a single PCI-E 3.0 lane being capable of around 985MB/s, so roughly 3.95GB/s theoretical maximum.

    However, it's not really the maximum bandwidth that shows the biggest improvement over the SATA interface; the improvements are much more extreme when looking at how data can be accessed. SATA wasn't designed with queueing in mind, whereas NVMe was. SATA can handle a single queue, just one, whereas NVMe is capable of 65535. That is where the difference is, usually.

    Because this is the worst Hexus "Review" I have ever read. It should be comparing this product to other similar products ie PCIE NVME drives like 960 Evo etc. Did HExus not have any to test?

    And Endurance is poor in conclusions.. where is the explanation of that?
