    Hello.
    I have Samsung EVO SSD 850 and did some benchmark tests.

    With ramdisk:

    Is this good score? What are your thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Your results put my Samsung SSD 850 EVO - 500GB testing to shame, using AS SSD Benchmark free app. :(

    Actually that's pretty good considering that drive is rated at 500mbs read/write

    I took a look @ Amazon to compare prices since my local FRY's has a 1 day sale on the Samsung 512GB 850 Pro (SATA 111)
    The Amazon comparison also has the PCIe rated speeds, I had no idea that there was so much difference w/ the PCIe SSDs

    You'll need a newer board with an M.2 pcie slot to use those Samsung 960 drives.

    There's a link somewhere in this forum to install just the NVMe driver during windows install set up, I used it to install Windows 7 on my 960 drive. Windpows 10 has native support for NVMe drives, and after you have installed 10, you can update with the Samsung NVMe driver

    Thanks for the advise to look.
    I searched MDL & found your post @ https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/samsung-nvme-driver-2-2.73876/#post-1339611
    I also took a look @ Fernando website.
    --
    One troubling thing I have read is that Win7, 8.1 cannot be updated to Win10 on this 960 NVMe drive, that is a total show stopper for me as it will probably also apply when Win10 does a twice a year update too.
    Have you had any success updating to another Winpows OS?

    Why can't you update to 10? 10 does have native NVMe drivers. 10 will use it's own driver to install on an NVMe M.2 and then you just need to install the samsung driver, if 10 even removes the samsung driver to update?

    I dunno who that person is, but I see no logical reason that you can't upgrade from 7/8.1 to 10. I'm still running on Windows 7 pro. I only had the 960 SSD installed when I installed 7 in my pc, left the other drives disconnected. Windows may or may not put your boot partition on a second drive, and if that is a platter drive your pc might not boot up very fast

    You only need to use Frenando's NVMe pure driver if your installing Windows 7 or 8. If your installing Windows 8.1 or 10, then you do not need to install Frenando's NVMe pure driver during the install set up (F6 option) Just install 10 like you would any other drive, but I would recommend you leave other drives disconnected

    You were absolutely correct Joe C, I snagged a 960 EVO NVMe, installed it in m.2 slot, disconnected all drives but DVD, didn't dick w/ the BIOS & installed Win8.1, activated it then used the upgrade assistant to install Win10.
    It runs great & is legally activated.
    Cleaned up the disk & ran the Samsung Magician to optimize... life is good here.

    Thanks again for the advise & hope you enjoy the holidays

    Edit: Here is my AS SSD benchmarks, not up to the Samsung claimed specs but definitely faster than my 1st SSD drive (3-4x)
