    Do I need to install the VMWare workstation on my optane SSD to see the performance improvements or can that be installed on a regular SSD while the actual VMs are on the Optane?

    Best NVMe SSD for VMWare workstation?

    I'm currently running a SATA SSD and it seems to me that performance can be improved for 4x VMs. Would an NVMe SSD improve performance?

    Couple of issues I'm having. First thing is when I set my LED options on my keyboard, they never save after I turn off my computer. Didn't have this issue with my ASUS mobo. Secondly, my primary drive that windows is installed onto is an SSD. I have a secondary hard drive that I use just for...

    Would a SSD Drive work with old Core2Duo + mobo?

    I was thinking of upgrading a really old PC with a cheap 60GB SSD. The CPU is the 6400 Core2Duo and it's on a MSI G31TM-P21 mobo. Probably uses the old SATA connection, but would it still work?
