Is SATA m.2 ssd compatible with Ryzen 5 1400?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, my friend has this mobo and he insist that his mobo can only accept a nvme m.2 because he is using a Ryzen 5 1400 and he thinks that SATA m.2 ssd will only work if he has an AMD Athlon™ 200-series/ 7th Generation A-series or Athlon™ APU.

 

From what I understand on what stated on specs:

 

Quote
Storage Interface
  1. 1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe x4/x2* SSD support)
    * Actual support may vary by CPU.
    * Supports only M.2 SATA SSDs when using an AMD Athlon™ 200-series/ 7th Generation A-series or Athlon™ APU.

He can use SATA m.2 ssd as well. The 2nd asterisk says if he had an AMD Athlon™ 200-series/ 7th Generation A-series or Athlon™ APU, he can only use a SATA m.2 ssd.

 

Which one of us who understand it correctly?

 

Thanks!

The m.2 port will support a SATA m.2. The SATA m.2 is the pcie x2 as opposed to the x4


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Your understanding is correct. All CPUs support M.2 SATA SSD, while NVMe SSD is only supported by Zen based Ryzen.

 

Your friend doesnt understand 'and', which is a big problem

But it's stated in his question that his friend is using a Ryzen and "insist" that NVME will only work because he's using a Ryzen 5 1400, so I think his friend knows what is "and". also the debate between them is will M.2 SATA SSD will work if his friend is using Zen. :)

So that's why the "and" is not applicable since his friend is not using AMD Athlon 200 series/ 7th Gen A series or Athlon APU.. but a Ryzen 5 1400 and as I checked the manual of his motherboard.

It only supports M.2 SATA SSD'S when his friend is only using this architectures. Therefore.... Only NVME will work in his current scenario since his friend is using Zen architecture. :)

Or is it M.2 SATA SSD only if using the said architecture?

 

I think I get it now.. only M.2 SATA SSD is supported not NVME if A-series or Athlon processor is used. Thanks :) @Jurrunio and... and.. BTW I'm his friend... HAHAHAHAHAH ;)
