    Can you use a 2.5" SSD for windows and then install a 1TB M.2 drive as secondary for games? or is the m.2 forced to be primary drive? Everything I see talks about using M.2 for windows and SSD for secondary, but wouldnt games utilise the higher read speeds of the m.2 to load maps quicker etc, providing a far better gaming experience?

    Guys can you help me with this, please? I just recently bought a laptop( Asus ROG Strix G G531GT) and it came with PCIe NVME 256 GB M.2 SSD. I need a upgrade but I dont know what to buy. I need it to be as fast as possible. I suppose it has 2 slots. Should I remove the current m2 ssd and buy a new one? or normal 2.5 inc ssd is enough? Thank you.

    1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (PCH) is it worth putting a m.2 adapter on it? as i only have the following and my only m.2 slot on the motherboard is used.
    Asus crosshair vi Hero
    2 x PCIe 3.0 x16 SafeSlots (CPU)

    1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (PCH)

    3 x PCIe 3.0 x1 slots (PCH)

    Not one of your better video's. You should maybe re-think this whole thing and start over.

    I’m glad I’ve spent the time researching and didn’t rush off to buy hardware. We have a 10 year old computer at work I wanted to upgrade with ssd. It looked like the cheapest option was to get a pcie adaptor for nvme ssd but didn’t realise you can’t boot from it for old motherboards. So will have to go the 2.5 sata route. Will need a USB 3 pcie adaptor as well to speed up cloning.

    I've watched this video just because I wanted to know about U.2, but even it's mentioned in the title, I haven't heard anything about it in the video 🙁

    @Linus Tech Tips Have you guys done a video on loading or read/write times for NVMe vs SSD? And in what applications would a NVMe drive make a difference? Also, potential bottlenecks, like transferring files between a NVMe and SSD drive, the read/write times would still be limited to the SSD capabilities, right?

  24. Tony Ortiz 11 months ago

    Accurate information; muddled delivery.

  25. Sean Young 11 months ago

    If the board doesn't support booting from nvme you could install a boot loader like grub on a data drive and chain boot the nvme.

  26. Post Concussion Gaming 11 months ago

    You went too fast and this was super confusing. I am new to this technology, just upgraded to the m.2 and it’s freaking fast. I think what most people want to know is, most older computers can only handle an SSD upgrade, while in order to upgrade to the m.2 would require an upgraded motherboard and the PCI adapter that you can add an m.2 too. I might be way off, but in order to truly have a fast system you need about $1000. Less of course if you just want to incrementally go up from Old.

    i use now my 2T nvme evo 970 plus as steam library 😀

    the cost? using google currency, so… 2049 NIS to > UDS is 597$

    I just noticed my motherboard has a m.2 port in it today. Sneaky pricks hid it between the expansion slots. Might put one in to use for the OS to make the computer a bit faster.

  38. happyflapyunicorn 11 months ago

    Hi from 2020 now everyone uses nvme for everything 'cause they got cheaper

  39. Zero Requiem 11 months ago

    What im confused at is, is the m.2 or nvme m.2 a storage hardware or just to make your storage faster

  43. Volrosk U. 11 months ago

    teribly sorry but i figured out on my own with a few google click M.2s are only hedging over PCIe SSDs (not PICe to M.2 the SSD is a PCIe card) is that it's 4 land and nowadays "PCIe" 4.0 by default and 90% of SSDs are set to ADHI by default so a chipset bios can easily reconize them for configuration on boot up and OS instalation

  44. Ozarudin Azman 11 months ago

    NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 is very affordable now. Bye2 SATA HDD & SSD.

  45. Capt777harris 11 months ago

    I really don't want an NVMe card. But something tells me they're going to be standard issue for future systems. …… big sigh.

  46. CGMe 11 months ago

    I just finally ordered my first M.2 drive.
    I'll have two HDDs (backup drives — total of 3 TB), one SSD (for games 500 GB), and an M.2 (500 GB) for my dual-booted (Windows/Linux), mid-tier gaming PC.
    I can't wait to load up games quicker!

    Jokes aside, thanks for the awesome break down.

  48. jon jon 11 months ago

    So is an M.2 just an AGP 3.0, And if yes then we are all getting ripped off.
