currently testing the AMD workstation with the
KINGSTON SKC3000D2048G NVMe, directly attached to one of the 2x NVMe slots (no RAID), as this NVMe drive seems to offer excellent price-to-disk-size-and-performance-value, if it is a kingston-quality drive, then there should be no problems 🙂
- NVMe0 has GNU Linux Debian 11 (work)
- NVMe1 has Windows 10 (gaming)
- attached to Gigabyte Aorus B550 Elite AX v1 (Rev 1.1) has ONLY 2x SATA ports (!? 1x for DVD-R 1x for magentic disc? not enough to build a big data storage system) with a AMD Ryzen 5600G
the veteran hardware geek probably spotted the “can’t be” numbers, where the write speed is even faster than the read speeds 😀 (said it before, CrystalDiskBenchmark results have to be taken with LARGE HEAPS OF SALT (almost no meaning, almost useless, as it very likely also includes RAM caching)
ATTO DiskBenchmark with it’s Direct I/O default setting (that crashed this RAID card and got AMD’s raid to freeze) is a bit more serious in this regard
checkout this comparison by userbenchmark.com Kingston-SKC3000D2048G-2TB vs Samsung-980-Pro-NVMe-PCIe-M2-2TB
both give a 5 year warranty:
- slightly +6% faster
- MTBF 1,800,000 hours
- 1.6PBW Peta Bytes Written (Total Bytes Written (TBW) as determined by JEDEC Client-Workload (JESD219A)
- MTBF 1.5million hours
- 1200 TBW (Terabytes written)
So both are probably “server capable” NVMes.
