Great affordable 1TB NVMe SSD: A-Data SX8200 Pro
« on: Nov 09, 2019, 10:45 PM »
Recently cloned my old Samsung 840 Pro on to a new A-Data SX8200.

Just wanted to share with you guys how epic this drive is. Who needs PCIe 4.0? The speeds are already fine!

For only $127, you get 1TB of fast NVMe storage from

Controller:   Silicon Motion SM2262EN
NAND Flash: Intel/Micron 64L 3D TLC

Great AS SSD results overall! I wish 4k1T was higher, but with mutli-threaded, it's great!

I play a lot Cities Skylines with addons, which is very RAM, Storage, and 4-6 thread CPU intensive, and it improved the load times of saved games from 8 minutes to 3.5 minutes. (I have a lot of added assets and mods)

Now I need the Ryzen 3700X and X470 motherboard to go on sale! :)

I can attest to the speed. I'm using an NVMe M2 Samsung 960 EVO and while I really like the speed, it was a bit of a hassle getting Windows 7 loaded.

Thanks for the update, Cars. I have often wondered about ADATA, so your opinion is helpful. I tend to gravitate toward Samsung, but I know there are many other good options out in the wild.

I plan on building a new system, which will likely happen next year. I have no doubt I'll choose an M.2 drive over a standard SATA SSD.
