I am trying to decide between Samsung 970 Evo Plus vs. Seagate FireCuda 520 for my new build. Build uses Intel X299 motherboard so “winner” will run in PCIe 3.0 slot, advantages of 4.0’s higher bandwidth for sequential throughput will not be a deciding factor.


What matters to me is how they would stack up in such layout in random access, especially at lower queue depth and thread count. Does anybody have such benchmark info, please?
