    Faster than NVMe, faster than RAM?

    Is it within reach of a mere mortal to build a computer that has storage faster than your fast NVMe drive or even RAM?
    I've experimented with running two 970 Pros on a hardware RAID0 but there were no gains to speak of, as the bus seems to be oversaturated.

    Laptop, NVMe drive


    Laptop, RAM drive


    Dev machine in the cloud


    I've found that the drive speed is a huge bottleneck. 10x 2.7GHz cores (local) are on par with 4x 2.3GHz (cloud) - Both recent Xeons.

    This is for a sabrent 1tb pci-e 4 NVME running on an pci-e 4 bus



    which is about as good as you can get - so I suspect the cloud is pulling a pile of tricks to get that result (as it's a hybrid drive which probably uses memory caching looking at those figures)

    I suspect your issue is your actual laptop and nothing is going to fix that.

      You lack imagination.
