Hello,

i have question about upgrading my g752VS laptop with two SM961 512GB m2.sata discs.

Can some1 confirm that they will work in Raid0?

Tnx

They will but what would be the point? Justin has a G752VY running 2 950 Pro and if you look up his post he probably wouldn't do it again not much gained read wise and little faster write speed. A single 960 EVO NVME of 1 TB would probably be cheaper and you still have an open slot and no worries about Raid crash with data loss? Just something to think about!!

Yes you can. There is a gain in sequential read from 2500 to 2800 or so and write speeds are doubled. Not what you would think you would get from a raid 0 array, evidently a bottleneck at work in the controller or DMI link. Not enough info on the architecture of laptop MOBOs to call it precisely but a bottleneck nonetheless. This is with 950 pros. I dont think you will even see the full speed of a single SM961 on this platform.
Also just an FYI SM961 is not a sata SSD. Different protocol. NVMe only.
