    What is a sata 3.3 cable?

    Just a quick observation the SATA 3.3 cable looks to have 4 wires where-as the standard SATA cables look to have 5 wires so my guess is the SATA 3.3 does NOT pass the 3.3V as there is not enough wires for that.

    How do you know if an SSD is "DRAM-Less"?

    I thought the platters were glass in modern (as in made in the past 20 years or so) hard drives and glass can't rust so spinning rust is a misnomer LoL!

    How do you know if an SSD is "DRAM-Less"?

    I wish I could get storage that fast in this old lappy (Dell Precision M4800) it is SATA (SATA III or 6Gbps) only but I wonder does a MPCIe to M.2 adapter exist I know I probably won't be able to boot from it though so that mostly defeats the point of having a fast drive.

    How do you know if an SSD is "DRAM-Less"?

    Thank You my Team "EX2" is DRAM-Less as well as being just a standard 2.5" SATA III SSD so this explains the lackluster performance I should have sprung for the Samsung EVO SSD first I will in the future and this will become a storage drive I learned my lesson research parts before I buy them...

    How do you know if an SSD is "DRAM-Less"?

    I bought a cheap Team 1TB SSD and to put in perspective this appears as a tad bit faster then a 7.2K RPM 2.5" Spinner so needless to say I want to replace it. Since it is so slow I'd assume this is DRAM-Less? I want to know if this Samsung 870 EVO or This Samsung 870 QVO drive has a DRAM...
