M.2 (NVMe) or SATA 3 SSD For Video Editing (After Effects & Premiere Pro)?
on Nov 23, 2018 at 1:05:35 am

So I want to upgrade my build a bit from the storage side

And since I love to edit a lot, I'm planning for buying 3 separate SSDs

1st for the system and main programs/apps

2nd SSD is going to be for project saves / project files, and I might store any downloads (maybe some games?) or movies in it

3rd SSD (which all of this about) is going to be a caching SSD, all of my work on After Effects and Premiere Pro will be cached on in it

So my question is:
I want the best option for each SSD type I should get, for me, I choose normal SATA 3 SSD for the 2nd (maybe also 1st),

But most importantly is what should I get for the caching drive, should I get normal data 3 SSD or M.2 NVMe? and would I get any noticeable performance or I should save my money and buy a SATA 3?

all of them are going to be 256GB each (2nd SSD might be higher since it's like a storage) and I was thinking can I just buy a 500GB and separate it to 250GB drives, is it a good idea? would it perform as a sperate drive?

And I would love it to be cheaper (I'm kind of limited on my budget) so the cheaper the better, but if the M.2s are faster then i would go with those


Thank you :)

What you want is a PCI SSD card. Get a 1 TB PCI SSD card, and there is no need to partition it.

If you're going to do 4K I recommend a lot more storage and a RAID. Even then, you'll probably need to transcode or edit with proxies.
