Learn about SATA, NVMe, M.2, U.2, and PCIe SSD types

Games and video editing require SSD types with non-volatile memory express (NVMe) technology since these SSDs can read and write data at over 7,000 MB/s

M.2 SSDs enable more elegant and effective computing solutions, the design of ultrabooks and tiny PCs is changing

SATA SSDs are widely used for everyday computer operations such as installing operating systems, playing games, and using general productivity apps

NVMe fully realises the potential of solid-state technology by leveraging the PCIe interface created especially for flash-based SSD storage

M.2 SSDs connect directly to the motherboard, saving extra power and data cords and simplifying internal computer layouts, is another advantage of these drives

PCIe supports x2 or x4 data lanes for M.2 SSDs, offering better bandwidth than SATA

NVMe PCIe SSDs and 2.5-inch SATA SSDs converge in U.2 SSDs

The four types of NAND flash are SLC, MLC, TLC, and QLC

A comparison of the benefits and prospective environmental costs is necessary to assess the sustainability of overprovisioning benefits
