Hoping to get some advice on the following:
About to build my x570 gaming and editing rig and I have a bunch of drives from my old Intel rig that I want to re-use. I definitely want to set up a tiered/cached drive array based on my experience with Intel RST but don’t know which route to go in 2019.
From what I have seen the two options most suitable are the paid version of StoreMi, i.e. FuzeDrive which currently has its top tier version for $30 (“FuzeDrive 1000 |Up to 1TB Fast Tier SSD1 | NVMe, Optane, m.2, SATA SSD | 4GB FuzeRAM | Single 2 Drive Tier”) or PrimoCache which has a standard price of $30. From LTT’s testing PrimoCache was the better option with more features for less and more flexible setup but has that changed since then? I notice that FuzeDrive updated just two months ago while PrimoCache hasn’t had a notable update since 2018. Has anyone ran these two head-to-head recently? If so would be grateful for some advice.
