Creating the right mix of price, performance, and endurance is challenging, but MyDigitalSSD's BPX Pro brings a fine balance of all these aspects to the table. The BPX Pro isn’t the best performing SSD we've tested, nor is it the cheapest, but it offers plenty of performance and a ton of endurance for whatever workload you throw at it.

The table below includes the current street prices and endurance figures for the products in our comparison. The BPX Pro ranges from $0.31-0.27 per GB, which is somewhat low for an NVMe SSD. Just this week ADATA dropped the price of the SX8200 to an incredible $0.22-0.29 per GB, and the Intel 660p retails for ~$0.21 per GB, but those SSDs only offer a fraction of the endurance.

If your workload isn’t write heavy, like most average gamers and PC users, there are alternatives like the ADATA XPG SX8200 or even the Intel SSD 660p. These SSDs are more cost competitive and offer a bit better application performance, so we would be more inclined to recommend them over the BPX Pro. The Samsung 970 EVO is just a few dollars more depending on capacity, but it doesn’t have the best endurance on the market like the BPX Pro.

If you're a media creator and plan to use an NVMe SSD to help speed up your workflow, most of your workload will tax the storage media with heavy write workloads that can chew through endurance pretty quickly. The BPX Pro is a nice less-expensive alternative to the pricey Samsung 970 PRO, which also offers a ton of endurance and performance for the money. But the BPX Pro offers more endurance than the Samsung 970 PRO. While it isn’t quite as fast as the Samsung 970 PRO, the BPX Pro is fast enough for the average prosumer.

    I pre-ordered one in 960gb. Latency was worse than my xg3 from years ago- maybe tlc vs mlc difference? Was always >100us iirc, about 3x higher.

    looks like fantastic value for long-term ownership with heavy write use, which fits a niche market perfectly. i'd ideally run a smaller EVO primary for OS/apps with Magician's Turbo enabled, and paired through StoreMI to conserve space with a large HDD for large apps/games, but have this BPX Pro for vid editing use instead of a dedicated media file HDD.

    ...just waiting on Zen2 for a dual M.2 mobo

    Turbo doesn't work on the nvme 970 ... Something they dont shout about ...means you can still run it on your old sata SSD for equiv speeds , tho .

    Just purchased the BPX PRO a couple of days ago, the 512 (480GB) version from Amazon for an amazing $129.99.

    If it's anything close to my three previous gen BPX drives, will be fantastic. My only issue with these, although running in PC's didn't affect me, were these probably not best suited for notebooks, as these generates heat. Mine are cooled with a Sintech PCIe adapter with 50mm fan attached. The fans has been upgraded to those with ball bearing type, as the included ones were of the sleeve or rifle type & became noisy at boot, would quieten in a minute or so.

    Hopefully this newer version will run much cooler as posted in specs, so will be suitable for everyone in need of an NVMe SSD. BTW, this latest BPX PRO has been called the 'Samsung 970 EVO Killer' by an Amazon reviewer. Hopefully I'll feel the same, will be replacing a 512GB Samsung 950 PRO NVMe with the BPX PRO.
