Nice! I hope it all goes well for you. The M.2 SSD looks interesting, but I doubt I would ever realize its benefits. The only time I ever track anything all at once is when I "record" the Superior Drummer output to multiple tracks.

M.2 benefits are felt throughout the OS.

From Copy paste to starting the computer

Is M2 faster than PCI SSDs?

An M2 SSD is a an SSD on a PCIE bus.

So yes, an M2 SSD is MUCH faster than a SATA SSD.

I was talking about comparing M2 with using an SSD on a PCIE card.

I’ve never come across an SSD with a PCIE connection that wasn’t referred to as an M2 or NVME drive. Every SSD has been with a SATA interface.

Do you have a link for a traditional SSD with a PCIE connection?

Ah yep, OK.

IIRC, the speeds are identical as they are essentially the same drives and are both accessing the PCIE buss on the MB. They run rings around SATA SSDs, but I'm sure you're aware of that already.

If anyone sees any mistakes with what I've written (Guitardom, Darryl etc.) please feel free to correct or add extra info.
