Since we are reviewing a SATA SSD, we are only going to include other SATA SSDs for comparison. The two SATA SSD’s we are including we have not specifically reviewed here. However, these are two SSDs we had on hand here, so we simply used them. One of them is a popular, well-known brand with good performance, so this will be a tough test.
Firstly, we are using a Samsung 860 EVO 1TB M.2 SATA SSD. The Samsung 860 EVO is known as a very good, and fast, SSD. These drives are known for their performance so this will be tough competition for the T-Force Vulcan SSD. Our particular Samsung 860 EVO is of the M.2 form factor. Therefore, it slots into our motherboard’s M.2 slot. However, it operates across the SATA 6Gbps protocol. We also need to state that this SSD does have a heatsink attached to it providing cooling to the SSD.
Second, we have an older 2.5” form factor SSD we use a lot in our testing rigs. It is a Mushkin Reactor 2TB 2.5” form factor SATA 6Gbps SSD. While this is an older drive, it does use MLC type memory, not TLC.
These are all the SATA SSD’s we had on hand at the moment, so this will do for our testing comparisons.
