    Thinking about getting a 1TB m.2


    So, I'm thinking of getting a 1TB m.2. My only dilemma is... should I use it as a regular ssd or pair it up with amd storemi (which can use 256GB of it)?

    @vgchat -

    If you have the required hardware (chipset), I would give it a go and evaluate for free.

    https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/store-mi

    However, any way you spin it, the result is still caching!

    Probably better with a real fast SSD like this -

    SSD 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 1 TB Memory & Storage - MZ-V75S1T0B/AM | Samsung US

    My first thought was that using a 1TB SSD in what is basically a caching scheme is crazy.

    On further thought, it's crazy.

    I'd suggest getting this Sabrent Rocket Q 1TB NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive R/W 3200/2000 MB/s (SB-RKTQ-1TB) - Newegg.com or this Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive (SB-ROCKET-1TB) - Newegg.com as an alterative to Samsung. If you had a PCI-E 4.0 CPU + motherboard (you do not, at least in your My Computer listing), I'd suggest this: Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD Maximum Performance Solid State Drive With Heatsink (SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-HTSK-1TB) - Newegg.com.

    Sorry can't say whether you should use it as a regular ssd or pair it up with amd storemi.
    But. ...
    Would suggest to check for all the compatible storage drives with your MoBo maker here .

    Thanks vineet & bobkn. It looks like I can use just about any nvme m.2 drive that I'd like to with that mobo. Also right now, I'm in the process of looking for a good nvme m.2 1tb model with 3K+ read for the lowest price.

    Oh and thanks compumind, the evo models were the first ones I was considering actually.

    I have no connection with Newegg, except as a sometime customer. 1TB, M.2 2280, Internal SSDs, SSDs, Components - Newegg.com

    I got this one Sabrent Rocket Q 1TB NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive R/W 3200/2000 MB/s (SB-RKTQ-1TB) - Newegg.com on sale for $100 recently. The claimed sequential read/write are 3200/2000 MBps. I have seen that in CrystalDiskMark. It's a QLC drive, For an additional $20, Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive (SB-ROCKET-1TB) - Newegg.com is a TLC drive, rated at 3400/3000.

    The Sabrent drives rely on Windows' built-in NVMe drivers, and TRIM. No utilities are available from them.
