Hi all, setting up a AMD rig. a bit of gaming and a bit of video processing. some virtualization too. ROG Zenith II Extreme is picked for the m.2 slots and 10g lan.
Total of 5 m.2 drive can be installed. 3 on board and 2 on the DIMM.2 module.
My 1st question is, what is the speed ranking of these m.2 slots?
My understanding is that the 2 M.2 slots next to the PCI E talk to the CPU directly, they should be the fastest. The one at the back of the board is through the chipset, might be slower due to share PCI E lane with other things like sata and wireless etc. The 2 slots on the DIMM.2 talk to the CPU directly like RAM?
Highest Speed is M.2_1 and M.2_2, then DIMM.2, then the one at the back of the card?
2nd question. is the order below the optimal option?
Fastest slot: OS 2nd fastest: video editing scratch 3rd: App and games 4th: Video source 5th: Video output
