There Are Three Current Types Of Storage Drives
  • M.2 NVMe / PCIe SSD - The most expensive & fastest for the ultimate performance machine (up to 32Gb/sec continuous read speed)
  • SATA3 SSD - The most popular current drive type & a very good price to performance balance. A huge jump from mechanical drives (up to 6Gb/sec continuous read speed)
  • SATA3 Traditional / Mechanical Drive - The lowest cost drive type. Can still be used as the only drive in the system, but for best performance you should also have some type of SSD drive in the system for the operating system and applications. (continuous read speeds are approx .5Gb/sec)
M.2 NVMe PCIe Type SSD (Solid State Drive) - M.2 is the newest and fastest connector type and is physically on the surface of new motherboards. These drives look like a shorter version of a memory module.

We sell the newest and fastest type M.2 drives, PCIe x4 NVMe. These drives become part of the native PCIe bus on the system and have a maximum continuous throughput of up to 32gb/sec (Approx 5 times as fast as normal SATA3 type SSD). For the ultimate and most modern performance system these drives should be used for at least the operating system and application software, but they can be used alone or in any combination with other drives (SSD and / or mechanical). Windows 10 is required for NVMe drives.

You can use any combination of the three drive types in your system.
