I think Ched was talking about something - tbh, it was beyond me so I read it, didn’t understand so it went out of my braincell.

I can now go M2 and my 1Tb SSD gaming drive isn’t big enough, it seems, so looking at options to expand for speed and low dollah.

M2 are not low dollah when compared to standard size SSD, but do have a considerable speed improvemnt on paper.

Cheap option is maybe grab one of those 500gb and sell the Div 2 key.

Yeh, those were my thoughts, tbh… Drama I have is my pretty, super-laid-out, efficient, pretty case doesn’t have a proper “holder” for another SSD. M2 easy to hide… Feck. Did I mention taht my case is pretty?

Are M2 molto faster than SSD?

Good read: https://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/sata-3-vs-m-2-vs-nvme-overview-and-comparison/

But, yes, M.2 (NVMe) are a lot faster because they use the PCI-E bus rather than the older SATA bus.

TL;DR

  •     7200 RPM Hard Drive – average read/write speed of 80-160MB/second
    
  •     SATA 3 SSD – read/write speed up to 550MB/second
    
  •     NVME (M2) SSD – read/write speed up to 3500MB/second

Something to note is that NVME and SATA M2 drives are different, so check which your board supports.
