Just as fast as the 970 EVO but hundreds of dollars less. PCIe 4.0 drives on the market right now are also about the same speed when not doing purely single file sequential work. Amazing. You won't be disappointed.
Unlike some other drives it also doesn't overheat too quickly, letting you make long backups. I just did 100,000+ files and 500GB in less than 20 minutes (vs 6 hours for an external SSD I bought that throttled). You can also buy the S11 Gammix Pro if you want a heatsink, or the S50 for the PCIe 4.0 version.

I've a pair of the 1TB SX8200 Pro drives. One each in a pair of GPU compute boxes. The SX8200 drives can keep up with a 2080ti training in Caffe or Tensorflow, and with a Radeon VII training in Tensorflow: either reading individual image files or reading from tfrecord or whatever Caffe calls it's archive format. This use case is very read intensive and not write intensive. YMMV...
None so far, one drive has been in service six months and the other four months.

- Competitively priced - Strong performer
- First drive died - Slow RMA process
Have 2 of these running in Raid 0 in an ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502 laptop. Averaging 2,600MB/s transfer speeds, with a maximum of 4,345MB/s. Access time is 0.065ms. The averages are maintained throughout lengthy file transfers. Running it as a single drive, I averaged 700-800MB/s. The first one died, though it is uncertain whether it died on its own, or the also dying ASUS Maximus XI Hero Z390 board took it down along with it. Second drive has been running good.
