External SSD for Mac Studio
1

I've got a new Mac Studio and Studio display.

Things are not as snappy as I hoped.

A bottleneck for LR is that my 8TB of photos is on an aging HD. So it's time to replace it with a ssd, of 12 or 16TB. Apparently external ssd's are speed limited on the Mac Studio. There is now something called afps that the ssd should be formatted with. That is what I've been able to learn online.

But I can't for the life of me figure out what actual ssd, from a reliable manufacturer, that is not portable, to buy.  All I want is something fast, and reliable.

Has anyone figured this out? Advice would be most appreciated.
