    Currently have my OS on 500 GB SATA SSD M2 installed. I got a new nvme SSD, 2TB and want to put all my games and stuff in there. Should I reintsall windows in the new nvme or is not gaining any Performance from staying on its seperate sata SSD?

    M2 NVME SSD

    How much exactly does Windows 10 benefit from being installed on an M2 NVME SSD compared to a SATA-600 SSD ?

    Other than a faster boot time, how exactly does windows benefit from the direct connection to the cpu that an NVME SSD offers?

    M2 NVME SSD

    So you think it truly is worth it to have windows installed on an M2 NVME SSD instead of installing it on a sata-600 ssd and installing your most important software on the M2 NVME SSD ?

    Clone present nvme pcie ssd to replacement nvme pcie ssd?

    I have a 500GB M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe SSD (boot drive) that I want to replace with a higher capacity M.2 card.

    Where do I put the new SSD during the NVMe to NVMe cloning process? My mobo only has one M.2 slot for NVMe SSD's so do I want to use an external adapter for one of the M.2 cards? If so, do you have a recommendation?

    If you have solved this issue for your desktop or laptop I would like your advice on if and what extra hardware you needed during the cloning.

    please remember that I am dealing with PCIe NVMe drives ONLY. NO Sata is involved except possibly for a connecting cable from the desktop to an adapter. I am experienced with cloning SATA III drives but cloning NVMe is a little
    new to me.

    Computer: Dell XPS 8920, 32GB ram.

    Present SSD: KXG50ZNV512G NVMe Toshiba 512GB

    New SSD: CT13049074 Crucial P1 NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD 1TB (or 2TB if available soon) or similar storage device.

    Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, version 1809.
