Never heard of the M.2 disks, I'll have to check it.
Do!

The performance is significantly higher than for SATA disks, especially if your mainboard provides PCIe 4.0 or even better, 5.0 - and the M.2 disk you buy match your PCIe version. But your mainboard must be prepared for it - running an external M.2 through a USB interface is like pearls before swine Smile | :)

Don't be surprised if you motherboard has an M.2 socket! After I discovered that M.2 in my friend's computer, I went home to read the documentation for my old, 2015 vintage PC (i-5820K CPU). Lo and behold, it did have an M.2 socket as well, that I never noticed before! If Wikipedia tells the truth, M.2 was 10 years old last November. So you might be in luck. Having an M.2 system disk, I never notice neither boot up times or application startup times. (Of course it isn't immediate, but it no longer is of any concern.)

Religious freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make five.
