It took me some days (fighting a slight cold) to get Elive onto a NVMe 970 Pro (that is, the way I wanted it) and HOLY SH*T it looks like Elive is on double steroids now!!! I haven't gone into compiling things, but just wanted to let you guys know its running like crazy!!! BEAUTIFULL!!!! BEAUTIFULL!!!
Yep, I heard NVMe 970 Pro makes a computer " damn fast " LOL
I've got the cheaper Crucial M2-sata SSD's in my laptops and they fly.
I suspect yours will run circles around them.
I wish I had that kind of money! :
Well it's not that expensive: about €170 for the 512Gb.
My 1Tb Crucial CT1000MX500SSD4 cost me €114 at the time but that 970 Pro is almost 7x as fast....not bad at all.
It'll burn holes in my laptop.
Same thing for me... I use not expensive SSD drive i installed in my PC (from 64GB to 500 GB) They gaved a 2nd life to my PCs...
I don't buy anymore 2000$, 3000$ or even 4000$ PC as I once did....
My last one, main one was around 200 or 300$ used.... i7 used HP ... Running Linux with SSD with 16 GB of RAM and the PC is doing very well
The 970 is the model I wanted to buy recently (3 GB / second read + 1,5 GB / second write, if im not wrong)
For now I still with my default SSD which is already 500 MB / rw so stills very good, not very hurry for now
