No, they are not the same thing. But when talking about M.2 SSD's, they are usually used to refer to the same thing.

 

An M.2 SSD can use NVME memory and thus use the PCIE interface (gen 3 or gen 4), or it's an M.2 SATA SSD. So if the motherboard says "supports M.2 NVME", they mean they support M.2 SSD with the PCIE standard.

^^ explains it very well


Anything i've written between the * and * is not meant to be taken seriously.

keep in mind that helping with problems is hard if you aren't specific and detailed.

i'm also not a professional, (yet) so make sure to personally verify important information as i could be wrong.

my motherboard says pcie 3.0 and nvme is not mentioned so I should not consider buying the drive with nvme? right?

In this context nvme and pcie 3.0 mean the same connection type.

Though there also is PCIe 4.0 and SSDs that  are compatible with that.


... but I'm no expert

M.2 is a physical slot that can be wired to use nVME, SATA or both.

From the manual:

As you can see, your motherboard supports M.2 SSD's, that use the NVME memory standard and use the PCIE protocol.

So yes, an M.2 NVME/M.2 PCIE drive is supported.

On Asrock's site under Specification > Storage it states:

"Ultra M.2 Socket (M2_1), supports M Key type 2242/2260/2280 M.2 PCI Express module" and "Supports NVMe SSD as boot disks"

 

The M.2 slot on your motherboard supports nVME.
