What is the MSI TURBO M.2

I bought a MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon and i see it has 2x Turbo m.2 slots that do 32Gbps. 

I was wondering what is the best way to fully utilise the slot and if the 1tb 960evo is the best way to go speed wise at around the same money 

I also got an i5-8600k for extra information

 

Thanks anyone in advance for the information

I'd say it's a fast m.2 slot. The samsung ssd in the link is an nvme drive, so it will be able to utilize the high speed. However, you might want to do a bit of research, because I know that one some boards the high speed m.2 slots can disable one of the pcie lanes. It shouldn't be a problem if you're using a single graphics card and not too many pcie cards.

Turbo M.2 is just another way to say "supports NVMe protocol".

 

Yes, 960 Evo is the best NVMe SSD that's affordable.

 

I can only see 1 M.2 slot though.

You can save some money buying a current sata SSD, as there's really a point where at least currently there isn't much difference.

I assume that it means that it uses a full 4 pcie lanes and supports pcie nvme ssd's. So any 960 series m.2 ssd's would work well.
