Boy, I don't know what you guys just said, but I am greatly impressed! Between some of you creating great stuff and you guys knowing the ins and outs of various systems, I'm learning things every day. Thanks!
Also look into the PCIE SSD as well, the price on those are dropping rapidly as well.
Yes they are. But most older computers do not support them. I helped someone not long ago put one together. The same test I ran on the driver's I posted was 3400MB/s read rate. It's was a 1TB drive and cost was 140. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820301395 it's nearly as fast as the Samsung drives but about 100 cheaper.
https://www.userbenchmark.com/userrun/16710430 was the system it will swap to a Ryzen 3700x when they release.
I am glad you guys are learning a little something. I just got it installed and after a cable coming unplugged and not seen causing an issue it is up and running perfectly. The main guy here literally said wow as or bored so fast. Once bios is done it's about 5 seconds.
And for those who don't understand that is why there are guys like me out there. And like I said if you want to upgrade but don't understand I will do it for next to nothing or basically nothing. I really would prefer a ten dollar donation for sarcoidosis research in my wife's name to be honest. I have also been known to work for parts when doing upgrades.
PCIe will be much faster, use that if you can, use PCI if you can't use PCIe.
Here's a more technical description of the differences.
