A 1TB WD Black (2018) M.2 NVMe SSD in the M.2 slot (not yet secured with its mounting screw). NVMe SSDs yield a 4x or more increase in speed compared to SATA SSDs! Just as upgrading from a hard drive to an SSD makes a monumental difference in everything from boot speeds to file load speeds, upgrading to an NVMe SSD will yield even more gains in a variety of computing tasks. Here is a breakdown.
The M.2 spec was designed to accommodate both a SATA and PCIe interface for SSDs. M.2 SATA SSDs will use the same controller currently on a typical 2.5” SATA SSDs. M.2 PCIe SSDs will use a controller specifically designed to support the PCIe protocol. An M.2 SSD can only support one protocol, but some systems have M.2 sockets that can support.
Understanding SSD Technology: NVMe, SATA, M.2 Download the Infographic NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is a communications interface and driver that defines a command set and feature set for PCIe-based SSDs with the goals of increased and efficient performance and interoperability on a broad range of enterprise and client systems.
Khusus untuk spesifikasi M.2 SSD, ada 3 kemungkinan, yaitu: 1. B-Key, Interface-nya support SATA atau PCIe protocol. Untuk PCIe bus nya hanya support PCIe x2.
Step 2: Download and install MiniTool Partition Wizard by click the following button. Free Download. Step 3: Launch MiniTool Partition Wizard to get the interface.Then right-click your old NVMe M.2 drive and choose Copy, or select the disk and then click Copy Disk from action panel. Step 4: Select the new NVMe M.2 drive you just installed as the target disk to store those data from your old.
If you attempt to install an M.2 SATA SSD into an M.2 PCIe ONLY slot, it will not work. Similarly, if you attempt to install an M.2 PCIe into an M.2 SATA ONLY slot, it will not work. M.2 Add In Cards. Add in cards like the one shown here allows you to convert a SATA only M.2 into a PCIe M.2. This will assume the speed of the much faster PCIe bus. The card shown would fit into the PCIe x4, x8.
S400u SATA III M.2 2242 SSD. S400u is available in a minature M.2 2242 form factor which provides a level of performance on par with bigger form factors. It is up to 20x faster than HDD. It is perfect as the main data storage and, when combined with a hard drive, also as a cost-effective cache.
