Please pay attention to the notes of this product before placing your order
1, with the M.2 interface, why there will be PCI-E and SATA points
M.2 has two interface definitions: Socket 2 and Socket 3. Socket 2 supports SATA, PCI-EX2 channel SSD, Socket 3 designed for high-performance storage design, support for PCI-EX4.
2, M.2 interface can use the motherboard M.2 SSD
Non-also, different motherboard M.2 interface supports different channels, and some only hold PCI-E channel, such as the ASUS Z97-A, while others are compatible with SATA and PCI-E two channels, such as Gigabyte Z97X -UD3H. Then the problem came, if the Grizzlies armored war will M.2 128GB installed on the ASUS Z97-A will not be able to be identified. And if compatible with the two channels of the motherboard will not have such a problem, so to find out their own motherboard M.2 interface is to support which channel.
3, what decision M.2 SSD walk the channel
The master determines whether the SSD that accesses the M.2 interface is a PCI-E channel or a SATA channel. Such as GALAXY armor warfare M.2 256GB master is Marvell88SS9183-BNP2 master, which is a PCI-E controller, and the GALAXY arm Battle will use M.2 is the traditional SATA controller. If the access is compatible with both channels of the M.2 interface, such as Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H, can be identified, but one is taking the PCI-E channel to take another SATA channel, with the same bandwidth.
