Ye, no old Python version is possible. This is the ssd: amazon ssd. I run 3 plots on parallel on this one and have 1 more slower ssd where i run the 4th. I believe you can run 4 on the one above as long as you stagger them. You can use any thunderbolt cable on amzn but the one that comss with the ssd may already be fast enough (i bought thunderbolt anyways)
Curious on this too since I don’t have time to really test the by seconds comparison with something like Bloodborne installed on the main PS5 SSD vs an external SSD (the one I’m currently using)
My dude, carry around a SanDisk Extreme Pro 1tb portable drive and load that with the roms. Install only what you wanna play and unload when not playing. I normally run 5 games at a time but my entire 300+ collection is on the drive.
It’s waterproof, dust proof, x-ray proof, and drop proof. Small enough to just carry around.
It is pretty good so far. They now make an even faster one (2x faster). It is supposed to even have a longer life.
So imo LaCie is overpriced, with underperforming hardware that’s marketed to make you think you’ll get the speeds and reliability, but you don’t. The the last two I’ve had, I never got near the posted read/write speeds and the controller for the device ended up breaking after a year.
I’m a big fan of this
I’ve had a few of these and even use one of the older/smaller variations as a DJ drive. It’s expensive, but it’s nice when I can load a ton of media really quickly
I own two of these I had bought over the years for my Xbox One – https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-1TB-Extreme-Portable-SDSSDE81-1T00-G25/dp/B08GV9M64L/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=sandisk+ssd&qid=1615742491&sr=8-2
They are nice n rugged and can recommend them if you need extra hard drive space! I keep one in my backpack at all times.
I think it’s more about the compatibility of the flash controller than bandwidth.
I have a 1tb sandisk extreme pro usb 3.2 gen 2×2 (20gbit, not 10gbit) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08GV9M64L and is serving me well atm. No errors, no frame drops, consistent temperature (albeit still hotter than I’d prefer). I ran this in a few modes. 6k [email protected] (hq isn’t available in 6k), 5k in hq @60fps, 4k in . All modes ran for like 3-8 hours each. No frame drops throughout the footage that I could tell during playback. Checked using 6gbyte/s raid storage, with cuda decoding from a 2080. Also checked zraw, didn’t seem to have any issue, but I wasnt nearly as thorough checking playback frames cause zraw is tough to work with.
I also have a 1tb 10gbps adata se800 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07V1H939C/ that has caused me problems with PR standard at 1080p30. I refuse to use LT, and would rather just use h264. Consistently gives me problems with 1080p30 PR HQ. I wouldn’t recommend it for high bandwidth 4k/6k, as it doesn’t go for more than 30 seconds without an error. I used it consistently 4 times a week for 11 months with no problems at 1080p30, until it dropped 1-2 minutes of audio/video 4 times over the course of a 15 minute recording. Beyond unacceptable, so I immediately replaced with this next ssd.
Sabrent nvme pcie gen 4 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TLYWMYW
And an orico 20gbit 3.2 2×2 nvme enclosure with fan. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08P1B5FQ9/
Turns out this doesn’t work consistently. Not sure if it’s the constant fan over-chilling the NANDs or if the asm2364 is causing issues. (There are forum threads claiming asmedia chipsets cause reliability issues)
So I stepped down to a 10gbit nvme enclosure with a thermostatically regulated fan. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B081NXTRBL
And the same sabrent nvme from above.
This proved to be stable. Recorded high bandwidth video, no problem. It does have a different chipsets (asm2354, iirc) and the variable fan control is very reassuring. However, the speed loss with editing online (directly from ssd) was noticeably slower, and provable with bandwidth metrics. (The 20gbit is about 1.8x faster than the 10gbit.)
So I said screw it and went to the fanless sandisk listed at the top of this post. It’s winter right now, so ambient temperatures are advantageous. I placed it in line with my desktop computer’s fan exhaust during tests to help heat it up and simulate some hot ambient temps. No problems during atto benchmarks.
I haven’t tried any cfast cards in comparison, so idk. Maybe one day when I have lots of money to blow, I’ll get one and do head-to-head tests of reliability between nvme and cfast.
What’s best? Idk. Probably the overpriced sandisk. Put a tiny $8 20mm usb fans on it if it’s too hot I guess.
