AMD Ryzen SSD Storage Performance Preview

By: Jon Coulter | SSDs in Storage | Posted: Mar 6, 2017 5:48 pm

Samsung 960 EVO 1TB & Samsung 750 EVO 500GB

 

We wanted to test both PCIe and SATA storage performance, and we chose a pair of Samsung SSDs to test with.

 

To test PCIe storage performance we chose Samsung's immensely popular 960 EVO 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD.

To test SATA storage performance, we chose Samsung's value-oriented 750 EVO 500GB SATA SSD.

The factory specifications shown above are for Intel platforms, none have been established for AMD. We used Samsung's proprietary NVMe driver for the 960 EVO. For the SATA-based 750 EVO there is no AMD driver we could find, and as far as we know there is none at this time, so we had to test using the Windows 10 in-box SATA driver.
