I've been doing research on different forums to get some consensus on newer drives including the new Optane memory and I'm finding surprisingly little infor. Seems to be a couple folks who say avoid NVME for what seems like reasons related to noise and yet the new Windows X/Jplay music server uses one I believe. Even more interesting was mention of an adapter to plug SATA into the M.2 slot, this way you can still have external linear power but but have better latency/proximity(?) and bypass SATA controller. 

 

Anyone else try these options out?

Hi Wushu!

 

I have not yet tried this but am considering Optane for a new control PC build that I already have most the parts purchased (ASUS Z170M-PLUS motherboard).

The M.2->SATA adapter idea I must have missed... to me seems like a more conservative option -

...not to mention the Optane modules are pretty expensive and I already have a few suitable SSD's on hand, including a vintage Intel 64GB which is supposed to be pretty good...

 

(By the way, I ordered this regulator for the OS SSD which I will try with a suitable TeraDak LPS)

Is this the correct style M.2->SATA adapter?

My experience tells me that the type of memory chip is far more important than the way it's connected to a PC. I still use SLC CF card in OCXO-CF sata adapter in my Audio PC. In Control PC, where I need a lot faster drive, I use SLC SSD.
