For years I have been dealing with poor hard-drive performance on my Gax58ud3r. I only get around 200 mbps write and 300 read. I have been reading up on the Samsung m.2 drives and pcie adapters. So far it only looks like they make a pcie 3 adapter and my mobo is pcie 2. Are those adapters backwards compatible? Is there any chance of getting one to work? Right now in running osx 10.11.6 on my Sata 3 ssd and I'd like better performance for audio and video editing. It wouldn't cost much to upgrade and if I can get around 500 mbps or so read and write I'd be much happier! Trying to get as much out of my computer before I can afford to build a new one.
