Is it possible to run the 2TB Samsung 980 NVMe drives as data storage on a Z820 ?
It will obiously only run at PCIe3 speed and I just want to use it as fast data storage if possible?
Go to Solution.
nvme drives can be used on the 820 as data drives, they only have issues as boot drives although workarounds exist that allow nvme booting via a software based loader
Thank you @DGroves
So the Samsung 980 PCI Express 4.0 x4 will be compatible as data drive even if the Z820 has PCIe 3 slots?
yes, it will simply work, pci-e 4 devices will work at pci-e 3.0 speeds this fact is covered in the pci-e specifications
Thank you @DGroves 🙂
