He asked not you right you went all salty and bully on me but it did not work so now you keep being salty ??
I am on 3B7QCXE7 Firmware
And historically they also use Hitachi and Toshiba drives. I’ve got 4 sandisk SSDs and they never give me any problems.
Well put, and I’ve been reading up a bit on this issue and it also seems there are also software compatibility issues. Steam, Adobe and a few other Pro apps that are not very compatible with apfs most of which have been updated to be more compatible. It’s a new system and there are a lot of variables to consider but in general it has worked well for most users and programs. I think trim is the key. If you dont clean it up it can get messy or if you interrupt a trim shutdown by cutting power then your asking for trouble IMO.
Apple uses Samsung in most of their Macs afaik
The iMac pro uses raid 0 samsung afaik
I can confirm slower booting on 1TB 970 Pro compared to an older SM951 that I had previously.
Trim is enabled by default on nvme drives in high Sierra.
I don’t mins the longer boot time as the system flies when it’s logged in. It’s only maybe a 20 second difference and my machine is on all the time.
iMac Pro iFixit teardown SSD:
They might use similar Samsung memory in other iMac Pros of course. There's no dedicated SSD controller, its handled by the ARM T2 chip.
hi sorry for the late reply I been very busy fixing the house painting and stuff like that, usually I use my computer everyday but I was very busy and tired and I didn't turn it on, there is your answer like I suspect it, it is the firmware, you might think that is only with APFS but if you have another spare drive, simply install windows on that spare drive, boot up then format the 960 in NTFS and run a few benchmarks then you will see that it will also happens on windows using NTFS, sorry for the bad news, you can contact Samsung and they can replace the drive for one with an older firmware or give you a credit for you to buy a new 970, simply use google and search for this
since I can provide a direct link outside the forum
sorry for the word , I didn't use the word but I was accepted in Samsung forum so I guess is not a bad word
is up to you now if you want to contact samsung, depending on how long since you have the drive
but I'm sure if you know what to say they will have to do something about it
like send you a 960 with a good firmware or replace the drive for something else
thank you for posting the firmware
try in windows and you'll see that it will happens in windows too
but really don't waste your time
simply read the messages in Samsung forum
check this out izo1
4 samsung 970 raid0 almost 12,000 read
maybe if I OC my CPU I can get all the way up to 12,000
but I'm happy with those numbers
I understand the risk of raid0, this just for extreme speed
I have two 4 TB drives that I use for data storage
I have the same data on both drives
not a raid1
I call this method a dual back or a backup of a backup
