Can someone explain me what is going on with this intel ssd?

The pins of the smaller portion are just power. Seems like that 660p can survive with just few power pins instead of having all connected.

I want to buy an M.2 ssd for my https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/A320M-HDV/index.asp motherboard.

I've read a bit about M.2 and I know there's 3 types B, M and M & B but the connector on this ssd doesnt make any sense to me cause as you can see in the picture it has 3 contacts while others are 6 or 5. What type is this? And will it work on my M.2 socket?

Knowing the model would help, but to me it looks like it's still the normal size, it just only has 3 tracks.

Looks like they're just power pins.

 

Your board is M-key and the SSD is M-key, so it should work.
