hi there recently got a 905p and 660p and everything is working fine but im just curious which way exactly is best to set this up, before i got my 660p i installed windows on the 905p and got a better WinPSR disk score (9.2? i think) than compared to having windows installed on the 660p and paired with the 905p (8.95), so im just curious if i should install windows in the 905p or the 660p for best performance, or if theres something else i can do?

Hello, @GOLiathus.

 

Thank you for contacting the Intel Community Support.

 

I received your ticket regarding the two Intel SSDs you are using, I will be glad to assist you.

 

You may use the Intel ARK site to compare the two drives you own as a reference:

- For example: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/compare.html?productIds=129834,147529,149407

 

In this case, by looking at the performance and endurance differences of the drives, I would personally use the 905p as the drive that will handle the heaviest workload since it will outlive and outperform the 660p, and wouldn't actually think about using the 660p as other than backup or spare, but this may also go down to personal preference, other community members are also welcome to provide any recommendations they see fit.

 

As a note, please also make sure that you are running the latest Intel Client NVMe driver:

Please let me know if you have any questions.
