Fake-Optane? 1TB NVME, I want to set up a 256GB partition and use that as a buffer to load to a standard drive, or not..
I have a 1TB NVME 970 Pro. I want to set up a partition of 256GB or so, so that it can be used the same way as Windows 10 uses memory ( On startup the most used programs, apps, whatever.. are loaded into memory for speed )... I want the most used programs, files, etc.. to be moved to that partition so they are loaded faster.. I want to be able to load all of my games on a standard hard-drive, then as I load them they be moved to the NVME drive, or the more the files are used, they are moved over... As I stop using something, the files are removed.
I don't care if a copy always remains on the other hard-drive.
Does software like this exist? And, yes.. It would need to be a driver...
I know AMD has some type of software like this, and Intel has Optane which acts as a buffer between the hard-drive.. But is there something so I can use my own drive or do I have to purchase an Optane drive specifically for that ( but with the limited PCI-E lanes it wouldn't work but at SATA speeds )...
