M.2 Bandwidth

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I saw some reviews say that depending on what port you use on a mobo, it could run off Sata or PCIE. But does it have to be in the PCIE slot to get the bandwidth or do the normal m.2 slots on the mobo have it? I was thinking about getting a Z490 board with a Samsung 970 m.2.

Most mobo manufactures will clearly lable the m.2 slot in the manual. Just look for the 1 that says NVMe/PCIe and you should be GTG.


At me or quote me, I want to hear your opinion.

Most motherboards have the top M.2 slot's PCIe lanes directly linked to the CPU, u would get the best out of your SSD this way, rather that running it from the SHARED chipset lanes.

U don't need to worry that much, just check the motherboard manual and find which M.2 slots are NVMe compatible...

Everyone was a noob at the beginning, don't be discouraged by toxic trolls even if u lose 15 times in a row. Keep training and pushing yourself further and further, so u can show those sorry lots how it's done !

Be a supportive player, and make sure to reflect a good image of the game community you are a part of. 

Don't kick a player unless they willingly want to ruin your experience.

We are the gamer community, we should take care of each other !

Thank you! The last time I built a desktop was in 2013 so before m.2 was a thing.
