Re: PrimoCache performance on PCIe 4.0 vs 3.0? Slot 1 vs 2?

Thanks - there are so many benchmarks, statistics, and opinions out there, it's hard to get/formulate a clear, definitive answer (and yes, I know it depends on a lot of parameters). Sounds like we'd get along - I have a 50" 3D 4k TV as my monitor. Building my own system - still waiting for my 5...

Re: Compression (with an option to turn it on/off) for cache data

I can understand compression for L2, but not L1. L1 is all about speed - which includes IOPS, especially for random small blocks, since that's how programs generally access data (i.e. lots of little bites, even if sequential). Unless you're just caching text files which compress well, you might only...

PrimoCache performance on PCIe 4.0 vs 3.0? Slot 1 vs 2?

Has anyone tested performance of using L2 cache on PCIe 4.0 NVMe vs 3.0? (on a PCIe 4.0 MoBo, of course) Or on the first NVMe slot vs. second? (i.e. CPU direct PCIe lanes vs. via chipset, assuming that's connected via PCIe 4.0) Just curious whether it's worth: 1) Paying for PCIe 4.0 NVMe drive (like...
