You know, normally, I would totally agree with your clear logical reasoning, but I've been reading up on Samsung NVMe M.2 memory devices and, funny enough, their "fastest" example of Gen 3 storage -- the 970 PRO NVMe® M.2 SSD 1TB -- is actually more expensive than the faster Gen 4 980 PRO w/ Heatsink PCIe® 4.0 NVMe™ SSD 1TB SSD. Here's a link that supports what I just wrote.Not necessarily. Gen 4 is more expensive than gen 3. And by the time you move to new laptop/desktop it might be gen 5
This initially made zero sense to me, but then I read that the older Gen 3's construction makes it nearly twice as durable as the newer storage memory SSD ... which, quite honestly, is why I asked the question in Post No. 22 of this thread. In other words, I must not be the only PC-dummy out here interested in the durability of these storage memory devices.
By the way, I've been studying the Samsung memory products more than anything else because we have several Samsung 2.5" SATA SSDs around here that have worked very well for us in the past.
