Confused

Hey so I was watching an LTT video earlier today (one about the £1500 PCs maybe I cant remember) and he briefly mentioned that the SSD had a SATA connected rather than an M.2 which apparently means that it's no faster than a standard HDD. This was the first time I've heard this and I just wanted to check if I understood it right. Nobody else (Bitwit etc) has mentioned it so I guess I'm understanding it wrong - highly possible, I've only got into this because I'm replacing my Xbox with a PC over the holidays and because of the research I've done in chrome my YouTube recommended section is full of LTT videos lol

yeah, that's not how it works. a nvme ssd is faster than a ssd on sata, but not aoways noticeable in daily workloads. but the difference between sata ssds and hdds are there. 

 

btw, m.2 is only a form factor

No faster than a standard SSD via SATA, Still faster than HDD. The PCIe x4 bandwidth is not available to this SSD.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

no problem. m.2 in general is confusing on it's own already...

Yeah that explains it. He had me worried because of the SATA SSD I had brought moments earlier
