When I do finally build a new DAW I plan to keep using the SATA drives I'm using now, which are two Samsung 860 EVOs and a 1TB Seagate.

Once Samsung releases a PCIe 4.0 consumer M.2 NVMe SSD, I do want to have some PCIe 4.0 ports to plug one (or two) of them into.

Currently the Samsung 970 PRO PCIe 3.0 SSDs like this blow away SATA drives because they don't go through a SATA layer. They are pricey though at $340.

For about $140 less the Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 delivers very similar performance.

But I'm expecting to keep using my current Samsung SATA based SSDs until Samsung has a consumer based 1TB NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 SSD. Then I'll think about getting one to boot and store all app stuff, and another for audio and video data storage.
