This is a super quick user review on a 990fx system, while we wait for ryzen

so i was wondering to see how far the 960 EVO would go on a 990FX PCIe 2.0 system before it was bottlenecked by PCIe 2.0

You have to pick your PCIe slot carefully.
Some PCIe slots are wired differently some are x1 some are x4 or x8
so you have to check manual to find the right slot

anyhow this seems to be a nice ssd, the reason why i am using it in 990fx atm is that am building a new ryzen system soon and why not try it out in a older system and compare it later eh?

Running Shotcut Open Source Video Editor and editing video from 960 EVO is quite fast

  • 850 PRO 512GB using AMD SATA 6Gbps
  • 850 EVO 1TB using AMD SATA 6Gbps
  • TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB using AMD SATA 6Gbps
