- ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe
- Vega 64
I've got a 960 EVO and a 970 EVO, and the entire machine comes to a standstill whenever Time Machine kicks over and hits the disks. This doesn't happen on my 2016 MBP with the standard Apple 1Tb SSD.I had big troubles with EVO 960s in the M.2 slots of the Prime x299 Deluxe. I don't know if it was the fault of the EVO 960s or thermal throttling induced by standard heatsinks in use.
What were the troubles you saw with your EVOs, @kgp? I'm considering ordering a 970 PRO if it made a real difference for you.
