M.2 Drives Compare

Recommended Posts

I believe the 2nd slot is PCIE 3.0 only, not 4.0. I haven't heard of needing the assigning the Gen to a M.2 slot unless you have limited PCIE lanes. Both the MSI X570 Gaming and ASUS X570 Crosshair booted in the first M.2 slot in Gen 4.0 mode. I didn't have to touch it in the BIOS.

Edit: Sabrent Rocket, Corsair MP600 and Gigabyte AORUS all used the same Phison PS5016-E16 controller and I know that Sabrent and Corsair used Toshiba 96L TLC Nands making them essentially the same drive with a different sticker. If I think about it enough I think only Samsung, Seagate use in-house controllers right now. That is for the PCIE 4.0 ones.
