I think I understand @ThatF
1Key primary topic was about the lack of dual (multiple?) M2-SSD ['bifurcation' thingy] PCIE support on the Intel Z690 CPU.
What would require you to have a need for TWO separate M2s running at such 'illegal
I run a Win10P supported by a mixture of M2/SSD/HDD/USB/LAN internal/external drives on a 4U rack-mount Intel -i7K (@17% OC) for the last 5 yrs.
...In terms of NAS'ing, I was gonna do the old "Connect 2 PCs together via ethernet method" because I don't access my data from other devices on my main network. Also with the NAS'ing, my x8 slot currently has a x2 SATA card (to bypass the chipset) and let my chipset-connected M.2 and SATA SSDs reach there speeds. ...
Do you mean establishing a "Bridge
" between multiple NICs/WiFi or just a simple local-area network?
Like your bifurcation needs, I also have a hang-up
in my PC builds: The MoBo I select MUST
have built-in dual-NICs (not as an add-on NIC card).
As with every soa PC build; stepping-up the PC' graphics subsystem also becomes mandatory.
I currently run matched 27" monitors (144Hz/1mS) and I am not convinced that they are ready to be swapped out for a single >32" monitor.
Same problem exists for my Radeon RX480 that has not reached its end-of-life yet but will require an upgrade... just because... I have already admitted to having hang-ups
, including being an Intel CPU fanboy!
My next build price just neared the $2k range. ymmv
