M.2 for ultra speed

The latest in modern SSD technology, M.2 Solid State Drives are slowly replacing the bulky conventional 2.5" format found attached to most PCs and laptops today. Small and compact for an easy fit in any machine, an M.2 SSD is the perfect way to reduce space in your rig while getting the fastest read and write speeds possible.

What is an M.2 SSD?

Traditional forms of SSD, like the previously standard generation of 2.5 inch SATA models, provide fast read and write speeds that massively outclass all forms of HDDs. However, their size still requires them to be separately mounted and use sometimes fiddly cable connections to interface with the motherboard. M.2 SSDs on the other hand are the smallest and fastest SSDs available right now. Their small, compact size means they no longer have to be separately mounted. Instead, they combine direct integration to a computer's motherboard with a complete lack of wires for the fastest possible read and write speeds and minimal space consumption. On their own, the standard versions of the M.2 SATAs reasonably outclass the old 2.5 inch versions in every regard. Taking up very little room, but still able to provide up to 2TB of storage, they are ideal for laptops, tablets, and people who love good cable management.

But if you want the maximum possible read and write speeds for your PC, then you need to combine your M.2 drives with an NVMe adaptor on your motherboard. These drives are capable of reaching read and write speeds of over 5,000MB/s. That's over 20 times faster than a 7,200 RPM traditional hard drive, and nearly 5-6 times faster than the standard M.2 SATA. In short, buying any form of M.2 NVMe SSD or M.2 SSD is going to give your system a massive boost.

What is NVMe?

NVMe stands for Non-volatile Memory Express and is a specialised form of interface protocol and data transfer. Designed as a unique interface for specific M.2 SSD models, NVMe SSD interface technology dwarfs the capabilities of the standard M.2 SATA interface, allowing for the fastest possible read and write speeds out there while barely increasing the strain on the rest of your system. On top of this, it provides even lower system latency, giving you the best possible response time.

Is an M.2 SSD better than a standard SSD?

In short, yes. While only marginally faster than a standard SSD, the compact size of the M.2 SSD alone allows you to save that little bit extra space in your setup. Having your SSD directly interface with your motherboard removes the need for any excess cables, making room for other nifty component upgrades. For gamers, you will not find a better SSD. However, if you invest in an NVMe M.2 SSD, then you will definitely notice the change in system performance. An NVMe SSD is better at all those important key tasks like large file transfers, video and photo editing, transcoding, file compression, and file decompression. Buying an NVMe M.2 SSD is ideal if you are editing 4K video or working regularly with large file sizes. While expensive, all M.2 SSDs are slowly becoming the new standard in SSD technology. It is very much worth making the investment to give your system that extra boost now rather than later.

How to choose the right M.2 SSD for you

Whether you need to expand your computers' capabilities or just want to improve your gaming experience, having a great M.2 SSD could be exactly what you need. The first step is to work out if your motherboard has the required interfaces to use an M.2 SSD. Older motherboards might be lacking in this area but all cutting-edge options tend to have at least one slot.

Next, you will need to decide if you want to invest in a standard M.2 SSD or one that supports NVMe technology. As before, a standard M.2 SSD is perfect for gaming, housing various digital media, and less taxing operations. But if you are working with large file sizes or editing 4-8K video, you are going to want the power provided by an NVMe M.2 SSD. Think about what you need your SSD for and you should have no problem picking the option that is best for you.
