Yeah but yours is not broken like mine
Maybe Tims right but as I couldnt find anyone who could scientifically tell me which bits make it fast - for an extra £500
40 PCIe electrical lanes
32 GB ram. ( note the whole shoot can go in ram)
And those super fast PCIe NVME discs, someone said they are 4.5 times faster than my interim backup Samsung Evo 850s. And I would say it feels like it.
Call it insurance, I dont know which bits really make it super fast.
As far as I am concerened if I had saved £500 and put it on deposit, Lloyds are only paying 0.7% so thats less than £5 per annum interest! So defo worth it.
But all this depends on the replacement MB running reliably.
At his point I would be happy if I could just get mine to shut down reliably.
