M.2 DRIVE for W10 or P3dV4

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Tomorrow I get a m.2 Samsunbg 960 500GB.

 

My current set up is two samsung 'regular' ssds. - 1TB and 512GB.

Whats the best set up here?

 

I was thinking

 

m.2 Windows 10 /pictures/videos etc.

 

1TB SSd for Steam Games

 

500GB SSD for P3D.

 

Or will i see significant boosts to performance by having the sim on the m.2 drive

 

 

6700k @ 4.5

GTX980ti

I just got that same drive. I have kind of changed my stance on installing P3D on a separate drive , because well, P3D is going to dump a ton of stuff on your C: drive no matter what (program data/docs folder/appdata etc). I would install P3D on C: ..... but outside of program files to limit the impact of UAC and file permissions issues.

That new m.2 is significantly faster so if you fly fast in say the F-22 it will keep up with no stutters at all - if you fly low n slow, terrain paging will not be an issue, so drive speed wouldn't matter.

The sim loads in seconds though, everything loads super fast.
