[Question] M.2 SATA vs M.2 NVMe: Which SSD is better?

Hello members,

Forgive me if I say this wrong but is there any reason to get a NVME M.2 drive over a SATA M.2 drive if they both have the same transfer speed? It would be for my Alienware Aurora R7 that only has a HDD.

Transfer speeds aren’t the advantage of NVMe over SATA. Total number of operations is. However, unless you’re doing the type of work that benefits from NVMe, it’s kind of a waste of money. NVMe is indeed significantly faster, but only certain types of applications can actually take advantage of that speed. General usage and/or gaming is not one of them.
