post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
i have a question as a layman, is buying a Corsair MP500 240GB m.2 ssd compared to a WD Blue 500gb regular SSD wiser ... apparently the wd blue 500 gb ssd is cheaper than the corsair 240gb m.2 ssd

how fast are the m.2 ssds than regular ssds ?

Something I learned. There are m.2 sata, m.2 pcie and NVMe m.2.

Which m.2 are you speaking of?

Very fast. The problem is unless you do large files transfer on a daily basis, that performance is not fully utilized. You will not see a performance difference between the two during normal usage, including gaming.

Lets say, that m.2 you have linked is like 4 or 8 times quicker than a regular ssd.

Edit:
Crazy fast.

Do you fold? If so, then an M.2 would greatly help.

If thats the case, a sata ssd will do fine. There is no performance difference when gaming between the two. You will just be paying more $$ for the M.2 as of right now.

@Keikei, Could you provide a link to data showing that? I didn't realize folding was so disk intensive.
