SSD and PM5/6
« on: November 20, 2018, 12:03:40 pm »
Hello,

I’m looking at moving a library of roughly 250,000 JPGs to a larger SSD.

I was wondering whether PM5 and particularly PM6 would benefit significantly from a device that runs using the NVMe interface - read speeds of 2.8GBps. I’ve been considering the one below.

Is there likely to be a significant increase in speed when searching and displaying images over a standard SSD with a read/write speed of say 500mb/s?

Thanks
