Recommend me a 500gb m.2 ssd and m.2 nvme ssd.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I still have no clue what nvme drives are good or m.2 tbh and I want both a ssd and nvme ssd.

Capacity for both 500gb since games will be on m.2 ssd and nvme will boot windows 10 and boot up applications perhaps my emulators too.

NVMe is only useful for large file transfer workloads like video editing, you won't see a difference between a SATA SSD and NVMe SSD for normal usage

Fairly new to the scene is the HP SSD EX950 M.2 PCIE. Really great benchmarks and price. I did a lot of research and it is currently #1 on my performance vs cost list. I received the 2TB model and cant wait top add it to my desktop

It is a good drive. I have it myself, you can find more information inside my post here. (ignore the low benchmark results - it's due to an unresolved X570 bug with certain drives)

im stuck with a ab350m pro4 if i use 4 sata i lose the m.2 sata if i use nvme n m.2 i dont need any of my crappy sata drives tho i do have 2x 1tb crucial ssds on 0 and 1 full of my games and media.  2 usb3 drives one being wd 2tb and 1tb seagate  full of games and my disc backups. since physical media is becoming hard to find. and i figured both slots are currently unused and could be utilised and 500gb is the lowest capacity i use.
