please, could you share some experiences about the new and much faster SSDs using the PCIe Gen5? This new Generation of PCIe interfaces allows much faster reading and writing of data (e.g. a Crucial T700 with 11.700 MB/s reading and 9.500 MB/s writing). There’s a special slot for such SSDs on new mainboards that support PCIe Gen5. However, when putting a graphic card, such as the RTX 4090, into the the PCI Gen5 slot for graphic cards, it’s said that this reduces the speed by 50% as only half of the lanes could be used by the SSD anymore (as it has to share all lanes with the graphic card). Hence, would it be a solution to put the graphic card into a PCIe Gen4 slot that is not directly linked to the CPU (as it’s the case for the PCIe Gen5 slots for graphic card and SSD)? Such PCIe Gen4 slots are using the mainboard’s processor, for example, Intel’s Z790, instead. Would this too much slow down the data transfer to and from the graphic card? Please, what’s your opinion?
Thank you all for your feedback in advance!
