Hi, I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm doing a budget build for a client and he doesn't have the money for an SSD right now. I am debating between saving money and getting an H110 (I have a CPU I can update the bios with) or getting a B250 for Optane support. I've heard Optane is a way of turning an HDD into an SSD, but how exactly does it work?
Does installing a 16gb or 32gb Optane M.2 speed up his whole 1tb drive, or only part of it? What's the difference between the two? What kind of speed improvement is he likely to see with an Optane powered drive versus his HDD or an SSD?
Just realized I posted this in a Memory instead of Storage. facepalm
