Fantastic value! Waiting for the 480-500GB SSDs to start sliding south of £40 now. Come on Black Friday
Excellent drive with DRAM and one of the best endurance. Hot.
Reviews on this one are quite divided.

Are you sure it has DRAM, the 960Gb drive are normally that little bit smaller than the 1TB drives because they don't have DRAM and need to reserve part of the storage to use as a cache.....

Yup. It has DRAM to speed things up. What you are talking about is over provisioning on SSDs.
Nice price drop for the capacity.
Doesn't seem long ago everyone was willing 1tb to drop under £100, now here we are at £80!

No, not over provisioning, that’s usually additional to the 1Tb capacity.

Many of these cheaper disks are cheaper because they do not contain DRAM and instead reserve a portion of the disk for a cache where is makes SLC writes instead of The slower MLC/TLC on the rest of the disk capacity.

You are confusing DRAM with SLC cache.

You are talking about The Intel 660p which has QLC Nand with SLC cache which speeds things up using the cache when the drive is not full.

This is a TLC drive which is faster than QLC and has DRAM.
Very decent price for a TLC drive.
Yes it appears to have 32MB DRAM Cache so pretty decent compared to most other SSDs out there! Otherwise it's the Evo860 or MX500 that I'd be getting.

Personally if I were not in a rush I'd try see if the MX500 or Evo 860's get reduced soon, I reckon the MX500 / 1TB may well be at the £80 mark on black friday.

Looking to boost my ps4 for the next 12-18months, this is mighty tempting as I can pop it in my pc once its served its purpose in the ps4. What are people reckoning on sub 70 on BF?

No mate it's def the non Dram version, you need cache space that's why dram version comes always on 500 gb, 1TB, 2 TB an so on, non Dram you got 120 Gb, 240 GB, 480 GB, 980 GB , and so on

The description clearly states that the 980GB model has 32MB DRAM. And the data sheet says the same.

The capacity of a drive doesn't necessarily correspond to whether it has DRAM cache.

DRAM of 32MB to speed things up is literally just that. The use here is just to help with access times on the disk.

It is not the equivalent of the DRAM cache that you find on drives with a capacity of 1TB, where there is 1024MB of DRAM and it is a write cache and the disk therfore doesn't reserve 40Gb of TLC for exclusive SLC writes to speed up write speeds

Sorry, I have no clue what you are saying buddy. If you know stuff about SSDs, then I am sure you will make the right decision.
