  1. This one says it's both 4tb TLC and pcie 4.0: https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Internal-Maximum-Performance-SB-RKTQ4-4TB/dp/B08D28X4HW Do you guys think it's written wrong in the product page? I don't know if it's actually pci-e 4.0 or just complaint, but then arent they forward compatible? NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 Interface. PCIe 4.0 Compliant / NVMe 1.3 Compliant. If I am not wrong PCIe Gen4 x4 is pci-e 3.0.
  2. I can't find a pcie 4.0 4tb TLC though, only QLC or pci 3.0. Is there any reason for this?
  3. Thanks a lot, yes you are right, that makes sense. Do you have any link to a product like that? Is it a card or a NAS like storage device?
  4. Yes I was thinking 8tb for a bit of head room and also store some crucial project files about 1.5TB so I dont keep multiple drives. This one is TLC also right? https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Rocket-Internal-Performance-SB-ROCKET-4TB/dp/B07ZQSDQDB Some websites say 3d nand is the better tech over TLC? I will do more search.
  5. Thanks a lot. Which nvme drives would you recommend if not QLC? I will check the LTT video now.
  6. But optane is only possible for desktops right? I was checking its speed but if I remember correctly it was around 1GB/s? I thought they are outdated by nvme drives. On top of this, can I use gen 4 nvme with TB3? Would it be compatible coz even though I will still be cappted by TB3 speeds, the price difference is not a lot and that way I would be more future proof: https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Internal-Maximum-Performance-SB-RKTQ4-4TB/dp/B08D28X4HW/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=nvme+4tb&qid=1605250455&refinements=p_n_feature_three_browse-bin%3A6797522011&rnid=
  7. Thanks a lot. Minimum 4tb but 8tb would be nice though quite expensive. The idea is to store temporary caches to read and write faster, but after the project is done, clear the drive completely. I was thinking of internal nvme, but the issue is I am also consulting this company so I am able to use their other laptops, some of which only have 1 nvme slot, and beyond that I am not allowed to open it up. That's why I am looking for external storage for fast caching. Here is more tests about caching: Optimizing on the software side helps a lot als
  8. Also I have this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07864XY8B/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Using it with a usb-c enclosure. The speed tests showed about 500MB/s. So if I use the above nvme enclosure I can get up to 2.5/3.5GB/s just like an internal nvme?
  9. It shows up as this SSD: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-PM981-Polaris-Solid-MZVLB1T0HALR-00000/dp/B07BPYDNVJ
  10. Thanks I will check this. I am not sure if my laptop has 2 slots (I think so), but I just checked the internal SSDs speed and it was almost 2.6GB for read and 1.75GB for write so I guess this is not bad. So I will try to install to the second slot if available.
  11. As fast as possible so 5GB/s would be good at least that's why I was looking for some alternatives. Laptop is Asus Studiobook Pro 17. I will check the speed of the internal SSD. Any recommendations? You mean for a single nvme inside right? I saw nestor but that seems like it's not available. I guess the ones with multiple nvmes inside are still limited in speed of a single ssd. how can I max out TB3 speeds externally? That's all I need basically for now.
  12. I wonder why they dont have gen 4 enclosures, due to thunderbolt? But TB3 can still max out a pci-e 4 SSD right? I am using one like you linked but I need some kind of RAID also if possible for faster read/write. I am using the drive with my laptop. Storage wise large simulation cache files. Something like this: That can be connected to a laptop? Why?
  13. Hi, I am looking for the fastest external SSDs ideally with pci-e with thunderbolt connection and multiple drives with RAID. Does this exist? 1. Fastest/pci-e 4 2. Largest capacity 3. RAID 4. Not very large physically as I am mobile somewhat Thanks in advance.
  14. Thanks I meant whatever I put inside the TB3 enclosure will max the device speed coz no NVMe device can exceed 40Gbps no? That was what I meant.
  15. Thanks but I strictly need TB3 because USB3 speeds will make using NVMe pointless. I found these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S88HGB9/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2ZS9XZ9DW5X20&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QY9V2KM/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=A3MJNIGJ08V121&psc=1 What do you guys think? The device will be bottlenecked by the device put inside no? Because if I am not wrong TB3 can provide up to 40Gbps.
