Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

“regular SSD”?.... I would argue NVMe is now the regular SSD and SATA is some old slow legacy stuff.

M.2 NVMe on 4 x PCIe 2 ? Yes still much faster than a SATA III drive.

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

Look it is simple. With that switched adapter card you need twice the PCIe 2 lanes as in your Mac Pro as PCIe 3 lanes on the M.2 cards. One M.2 card you need 8x PCIe 2 lanes, two M.2 cards you need...

Re: Pro Tools 11 BNIB, which version will IK get?

You assume it is unregistered. Worst case you get nothing. I suspect best case you get Pro Tools 11 and maybe 10.

Do you really want to buy the software with higher annual renewal costs vs just...

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

Oh dear we seem to have lost the thread here.

This is a dumb as a rock plain non-switched card. It will directly wire a NVMe M.2 SSD card to 4 x PCIe 2 lanes in a Mac Pro. What you want is a...

Yes, and be super-fast, but remember there is likely no performance reason to *need* to do that, these are so fast you can put everything on one drive if it will fit.... if it does not then sure grab...

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

It is not partitioning (a drive) it is two separate drives... just use them that way. The way they can appear as a single drive is with software RAID, the card does nothing but give you two very fast...

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

Good question, the reason for that slowdown in performance on smaller drives is usually just the lack of flash nvram fan-out from the controller, the smaller capacity drives just have less data paths...

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

That's not partitioning in the classic sense.... It's a smart move if you want to simultaneously use both M.2 drives you will get up to twice the IO performance.

Re: PT 2019.6 crashes every time while loading VocALign Project 3

:-) It's one of those plugins that seems to often drift "out of phase" with Pro Tools.

Re: NVMe upgrade for Mac Pro 4.1/5.1 Mojave

A Samsung 970 Evo draws ~6W-10W max. @ 3.3 V and usually a lot lower than that. So y'all got heaps of power to drive that.

Re: ProTools on SSD Drive, PT files and instruments on 2nd (non SSD) drive?

No two are not necessary. Install one and it will use a PCIe 2 x 8 lane slot in a Mac Pro and give you a PCIe 3 x 4 lane at the M.2 adapter.

Sorry I cut and pasted the abbreviated links from...
