8 PCIe & SATA M.2 SSDs Test ASRock’s Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+ AMD MotherBoard | The SSD Review
Some time ago, Asus released their newest Z87 ROG Maximus VI motherboard which was the first kid on the block to take a crack at M.2 SSDs; our review of the ADATA AXNS360E SATA based M.2 SSD was the first to show this board off. As much as we loved such things as SSD Secure Erase and the UEFI on this board, their M.2 design just seemed to be a last minute throw in as it was an add on adapter that shared space with their newest 802.11ac WiFi. Compound that with frustrations trying to switch M.2 SSDs on the adapter, the fact that it only accommodate M.2 SSDs up to 2260 (6cm), and the fact that performance really wasn’t any different than what we have now as they limited this idea to a single PCIe lane.
