This article claims that the bigger drive has better performance just by virtue of it being bigger, is that true?
Performance scales up with higher storage capacity with the same model:
A 500GB Samsung 850 EVO offers higher performance than its 250GB variant. The difference in performance between the 120GB and 250GB models is larger than the difference in performance between the 250GB and 500GB models, even more so than the difference in performance between the 500GB and 1TB models.
So if you want even higher performance, youll be better served by an higher capacity SSD.
