Final Thoughts

The Zotac Premium SSD is one of the few drives that can compete with the 850 EVO. Not so much from the standpoint of all-around performance, but definitely from a pricing perspective. As of late we've seen a lot of drives that are vastly inferior to the 850 EVO priced the same or even higher than the EVO. This is not the case with Zotac's Premium SSD. Zotac's drive is priced lower than the 850 EVO and at the same time, isn't too far behind in overall performance.

In our opinion, this makes the Zotac Premium SSD an excellent choice, preferable to both the HyperX Savage and the Corsair Neutron XT. The Zotac Premium SSD outperforms both the Neutron XT and the HyperX Savage and does so with far better pricing.

We feel that the Zotac Premium SSD is an ideal low-cost, high-performance drive for gamers where sequential performance is king. Zotac is a big name in video cards, and now making a splash with their new lineup of SSDs. What better than a Zotac SSD to compliment your Zotac video card?

Zotac's Premium SSD delivers an excellent SSD experience, end to end data path protection, 4K QD1 read performance of 10K IOPS, and second to none sequential performance. Zotac's first SSD is TweakTown recommended.

Pros:

  • Best Performing S10 Powered SSD to Date
  • 10K IOPS 4K Read
  • Excellent Price Point
  • Quality MLC Flash

Cons:

  • No accessories
  • Low Moderate Workload Performance
