May 19, 2017, 2:48 AM
As i describe in the title i wonder to know is what is better for me?
to stay with a cheap HDD and use intel optane to make it Faster
or buy a new HDD by seagate firecuda that works hybrid?
keep in mind that i have a motherboard it supports intel optane if i use the both intel optane and seagate firecuda is it ideal?
