NVME Dreams

For the man on the street like me it's all about a 'cheaper' or better said more price effective and producing products. I also do not care about boot, load or read times and the likes and 25-seconds here or there does not matter to me. But like the many hundred of thousands of 'underemployed' out there with extremely shallow pockets $$$-reality always bites.

I love the use of NVMe's it will make my PC interior feel much larger and I can better mash my utter cable-mess more into the case corners for better airflow. Especially with my untalented thick fingers and loathing the idea of any cable management and RGB circus lighting. But I think that NVMe storage will soon result in all PC's running 100% SSD. Some Z590 mobos are already coming with 4-NVMe slots. So adios muchachos and all mechanical HDD's.

Perhaps when I get a better and more meaningful paying 'full-time job' I can stretch for the big storage NVMe dreams as touted here. Of course for today and right now I am counting on my $1,400 stimulus check (gift) from President Biden and Carmella to tie me over. This stimulus handout cannot come soon enough like the lucky few here apparently waiting with cash on hand for the RTX 3080ti to tie them over.

Well, if you want the form factor, there are PCI-E M.2 ssds for more affordable prices, and same goes for entry level nVME drives.


PCI-E 4.0 storage would be a niche product if it wasn't for marketing, really. In all likelihood you couldn't tell the difference between SATA SSD and top of the line nVME without running a benchmark.

Yes of course you are correct. For people like me that will be the way to go once I can step-up or afford a new system. Perhaps the revolutionary teased "Alder Lake" and better times ahead in the USA during 2022 will show me to a full SATA SSD bliss. Most here love elected President Biden but now it's time for him to show some of his promises and especially for the man on the street including yours truly.

that is a general statement and as most of them it´s not 100% correct.

for gaming i tend to agree.
you will barely notice faster load times in most titles (yet).

but for some productivity cases you will definitely notice the difference between a 3000-7000 MB/s nvme SSD and a 550mb/s sata SSD.

it all depends on what the user does with his storage device.
e.g. the likelihood depends more on the user.
