Motherboard : Asus prime b250 plus
Ram : 16g 2400
cpu : core i7 7700k
samsung 970 pro m.2 1tb
8*8tb wd purpule
My motherboard has two M2 slots and when I put the Samsung hard drive in each one, the test results are different!
Is this normal?
Which is better for plotting?
3.Any suggestions for faster and better plotting?
ps: BIOS is updated and I do 3 parallel plots and it takes about 8 hours. (cpu usage 80% to 100% and m2 usage 20% to 60%!! )
Strange that there is a difference in random IOPS, makes no sense that this would be lower in the faster slot.
Neither is (much) better for plotting, both those speeds should be enough for plotting on a 1TB drive.
Maybe you will see a small difference when plotting between those to slots, but I would expect not.
But I think you;re better of to put it in the fastest slot, because the other one has shared stuff with the sata ports
