Is there a difference?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I noticed a lot of the gamer's builds in my area lately coming in to purchase 250gb nvme ssds for boot drives over normal m.2 ssd does using a nvme ssd make speed difference of late? 

I remember Mr Linus had a vid saying none visible thru boot times

It makes a huge speed difference, however stuff like booting into Windows will be mostly the same as a normal SATA SSD. For games it really doesn't matter at all. However, for people who need to move large files such as content creators, it makes a huge difference.

M.2 is actually slower for boot times compared to 2.5" SSD's in my experience, they are faster for data transfer and make for cleaner installs. other then prices coming down, not sure what would drive sudden adoption of NVMe, you'll never notice a speed difference in day to day stuff outside of the boot times for the average user.

No difference at all. Only use is for video editing or moving massive amounts of data

unless you do 4K video work or something that puts similar loads on storage, there is no apretiable diffrence in performance from a good SATA SSD


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play Paladins & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The LAN PC 5.0

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

They just see big numbers and want the best. Some people have way more money than brains. AKA 2080ti owners, shots fired shots fired
