Real world M.2 NVMe v SCSI SSD preformance

Recommended Posts

On the face of it M.2 NVMe 3500 mb/s  versus SSD at 530mb/s should be over six times "better" but how does that translate to real world performance when a drive is used as a sample drive for Kontakt, EW Opus and Superior Drummer?

I understand the bottlenecks with the older SSD are in the SCSI interface and this is bypassed with M.2 NVMe.

With M.2 NVMe currently around twice the price per TB it would be good to know if the investment would be really worthwhile in a new build.

I went from a SATA III SSD to an NVMe for the boot/OS/DAW drive..   Visually, I do not see any difference in boot times or operations.  I didn't benchmark before switching so I don't have the statistics to compare.

My PC is a Gigabyte Designare Z390 motherboard with an i9 9900K CPU and 16 GB RAM.

I’ve mentioned in the past that Superior Drummer appears to load intuitively now that my samples are on the m.2
