Getting a chance add some hardware to a new work laptop
Lenovo P52, it came with a little 256gb ssd in one of the M.2 slots
It’s not even close to enough space.
Luckily the thing has another M.2 slot, but the specs says this is a PCI-E 3.0 x2 slot…
If this a lie (refering to the optane being x2 and not the slot) then the following questions are moot
I plan on simply adding an extra M.2 ssd to the 2nd slot (1tb, probably an 970 evo)
Question is should i put the boot drive in the x2 slot? or this 2nd drive?
Most of my work is going to run off the 2nd drive. Lots of time spent searching text in tons of tiny files.
I do run programs that are going to be stored on the OS drive, but I will also be running some programs off the 2nd drive
My current laptop only has 1 sata ssd for os and data (partitioned) so no matter what I’m going to get a performance boost.
inb4 put the OS on a 2.5in sata drive and go raid 1 with 2x 1tb M.2 drives.
I would but the boss would look at me funny on why I suddenly need 3 drives purchased instead of 1.
