For my Ryzen upgrade build from Sandy Bridge PC, this SSD just bring the transfer speed to whole new level. Although in real life applications, less noticeable from RAID 0 SATA SSD, it is no brainer to choose 970 EVO Plus NVME SSD if the budget is there. For benchmark speed, google is your friend. Best mainstream NVME out there for PCIE 3 speed. Kept temperature around 44 deg C in my build. So far so good.
