    We test and review the all new Team Group CARDEA Zero 240GB NVMe SSD. This slice of M.2 NAND is fast and even has been fitted with a a thin copper plate. Will Team Group be able to deliver a unit that...

    Small typo (roughly 200 bucks for the 240 GB and 200 bucks for the 480GB version)

    Ah, thanks updated. It's roughly 109 bucks for the 240 GB version and indeed 200 for the 240 GB.

    Man I like the look of these. I really want one for an OS drive.
    Currently have an OCZ ARC 100 240GB for my OS. Reads max 490 read about 450mb write.
    I have 2 SanDisk for game drives. Both do avg 550/550 read/write. Thats enough for now.

    I have been wondering for some time, those file copy tests, how do they actually translate into real world performance (other than MB/s). I get that from a testing standpoint it's easy, but it all seems a bit ambiguous to me.
    Point being, does it actually make a huge difference? I have yet to see an NVME drive provide tangible benefits outside heavy workloads, i.e. loading up your OS from a SATA drive isn't really slower.

    TL;DR

    While file copy tests are great, what kind of loading times are we looking at compared to firing up a game from a SATA based drive instead?
