SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW
i've got a GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD7 TH
Micheal T.
ok
with a i7-4790S
and i don't see anything about M.2
will this drive plug straight into a pci3x4 slot, or do i need an adapter
and if i need an adapter how bad will the performance hit be?
Micheal T.
They should simply fit into an pce express slot.
you're sure
Micheal T.
Yes, as long as it goes into the PCIe 3.0 x4, it will work and read it
so the fact that it doesn't specify m.2 there sill be no performance hit
Micheal T.
Yes, the m.2 is more reference to the SSD, They are still PCIe SSD cards.
on these drives there is no mounting bracket, as with the Mushkin Scorpions; is the bracket not needed?
Micheal T.
No, they are different in design. These won't need it
thanks...
