    Thumbs up PCIe 5.0

    Has anyone been following the specs for these new AM5 Mobos? NVMe M.2 drives hitting 13,000 MB/sec (reads). That's incredible.

    I just looked it up, wow 14GB/s speeds, amazing.. I've been looking at that Corsair MP600 at Newegg again, the 2TB is now $199 I just don't need another SSD in my rig, I already bought a couple of 1Tb ones.

    Although I'd love to put together a new AM5 board I just can't justify it right now. My last build was in December and it's doing everything I need it to do. I can update my BIOS and put in a Ryzen 9 5950X and I think once those prices start to drop that will definitely happen. I would also like to put another M.2 2gig (or possibly 4gig) onto the board too. I'm watching those prices closely.

    I agree with you, at some point the speed difference becomes unnoticeable for storage drives, would be great for an OS drive though.

    I use a music program that lets you add samples that are produced by other companies and some of those packages can be almost a TB in size. They also recommend storing them on a NVMe, PCIe or SATA drive. Since the size of the samples being used can get rather large and they can really start to eat up memory and slow things down, getting the samples to load as quickly as possible is desirable. I'm figuring an onboard NMVe should do it. I'm just waiting to see some prices go down.

    Well you can use risers/adapters to add NVME drives directly to PCI slots on any MoBo, just not sure about the exact speed you can get out of them.

    Update: The news today looks as is AM5/DDR5/PCIe5 are going to make their debut in September. I've been watching prices on the Rzyen 9 5950X and DDR4 memory like a hawk. Although there have been a few price reductions I'm guessing the big drops will come when the new AM5 platform is released. Also DDR4 CL14 memory does not seem to be going down much. Any price drops are on CL16 stuff.

    The Ryzen 9 5950X is still sticking at $499 but DDR4 memory is slowly dropping. Once I see anything significant I'll be clicking on the "buy" button!

    Fall is usually a good time to buy hardware, with Labor Day, Black Friday/Cyber Monday, and the Holiday season around the corner. This year may be a bit strange though, with inflation cutting into corporate profit margins, and chip shortages. Intel announced recently they'll be raising prices on their processors this fall.
