(Lots of other sources for this out there as well)

I'm surprised nobody has made note of this.... Like the Crucial P2 this isn't just tinkering around the edges, this was swapping TLC for QLC memory which has ramifications for longevity as opposed to just benchmark numbers. Samsung has also recently been caught swapping hardware, but it looks like their swap was mostly a sidegrade (or possibly even an upgrade), and they at least changed the sku/part number to identify the new hardware.
