It does though. Serial ATA interface implies AHCI(or IDE). As opposed to NVMe.

How you're able to get those speeds with SATA III is beyond me though. How is more than 600 MB/s possible with SATA/600? W T F over?! :confused:

EDIT: Apparently the later versions of that drive are NVMe. Which are substantially faster than yours. Yours should be around the same speed as the PM871 SATA. :wtf:

I know it isn't a SATA drive since it was plugged into a PCIe card and the speeds are well above what SATA is capable of, but it's not an NVMe drive.

Found this benchmark result that calls it an "AHCI PCIe" drive.

AHCI PCIe looks like some sort of predecessor to NVMe, and drives that use it are very rare.

m.2 (m-key) can be both pcie and sata, and most mobos support both...pcie can mean nvme if plugged into m.2 port or regular pcie if plugged into pcie port (similar to one you plug your gpu in, only smaller, usually located below it)...pcie is a lot higher bandwidth standard then sata, so your drive is still slow, but it isn't occupying a sata port, which you can use for additional drive, unless your mobo disabled a sata port with m.2 plugged in, as some of them do. Best to go for better chipset if thinking of using m.2 drives, as better chipset usually means more pci lanes and more bandwidth, so you can use a decent gpu or more with one or more m.2 drives. There are also e-key m.2 slots and they are usually used for stuff like wifi+bt cards...

Finally found the original boot drive to this old server I've had lying around for the past two years.

80GB | Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 | PATA 100 | 7200RPM | 2MB cache

Honestly, this drive did much better than I expected. It's even older than the previous one I tested.

As an observation, those type of nano flash usb (very small) are getting VERY hot during operation with sustained transfers. That's why I stopped using them because one of them actually died during a long transfer (a while back, not now) and was replaced in warranty. That didn't give me a warm feeling about data security on them, so I got the full size one from above (128GB).

Picked me up a BNIB 200GB Maxtor DiamondMax 10 PATA 133 to replace the old 80GB Samsung SpinPoint PATA 133. $41 shipped :). And basically 2x as fast as the Samsung :eek:. Fastest PATA drive on the list so far too! :rockout:

I have replaced my SDD with a SATA Samsung 860 EVO.
Still on the motherboard SATA2, because I can't figure out why my newly bought SATA3 adapter won't see any drives. What's interesting is the difference in 4k operations.

Without primocache:



M2 SSD.

With primocache:



What does primocache? Sits in between CPU & SSD by using a large portion of RAM as cache. Helps with not only read/write but also trimmed writeback or some stuff. Extends life and easily boosts up performance by a huge gain. My system has 32GB of ram and 8GB just dedicated as cache is more then enough. It's not just handy for older or slower systems, but if you consistently use the same things on the PC it could really boost things up. I.e my old notebook which could barely catchup with Youtube now plays solid fullscreen just because it's reading from memory and no longer disk.
