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

System:

  • Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
  • FX-8350
  • 32GB DDR3
  • MSI Gaming X RX 480 8GB
  • Asus Xonar DX PCIe x1 Soundcard
  • 960 EVO 500GB using a JZLL PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter
  • 850 PRO 512GB using AMD SATA 6Gbps
  • 850 EVO 1TB using AMD SATA 6Gbps
  • TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 2TB using AMD SATA 6Gbps

Ever wondered how the RX480 performs? look no further check out the short list below for indepth reviews and youtube reviews

Indepth Reviews

YouTube

Other

Nice TV, but it has alot of small annoyances

Subtitles

  • Subtitles and Smart LED is a mess!? its not that smart, it will boost backlight on lower parts of the picture when the subtitles shows up
  • not possible to change primary subtitle language, its greyed out on mkv content (!)
  • not possible to turn off english subtitles on english language
  • or turn on english subtitles on japanese/non-english content only

DLNA

  • When browsing DLNA media server and sort by date, it will go back to root path and sort everything(this take ages with alot of media), would have been more useful and alot faster to do it on a per folder basis, so i can set sorting after date on "my pictures folder" but in the underfolders it can keep sorting a-z

Matroska

  • no FLAC in mkv support (it does play Music FLACs via DLNA)
  • no OPUS in mkv support (vorbis works however)
  • if the audio is unsupported, would have been useful if it tries another audio track? some of my files have both flac and dts/ac3
  • no H.264 High Profile 10-bit in mkv support (what? it is a 10-bit (12-bit?!) UltraHDTV for crying out lound)

will update as i notice more, some things might work but i havnt find out how, will try more testing of files
