Asrock motherboard support m.2 to work with cpu or it's only a normal m.2 without cpu control ?

I heard Msi A520M Pro motherboard m.2 not get proper speed because this m.2 is not connected with cpu. What is the way to know if a motherboard m.2 can gain more speed from cpu or not ?

Honestly? I wouldn't get either of them...that's because it's me. I also don't know what your system will be used for. To also add, I don't know the rest of your system's build. Might want to include them to add context.

Even without "full speed", you will never notice the difference in real world usage. There is a big performance jump going from spinning disk to SSD. But the gains are very minor after that. SSD -> NVMe or PCIe 3.0 to 4.0 or 5.0. The biggest improvement is moving off spinning disk.

One youtuber said, gigabyte a520m s2h motherboard m.2 work with cpu but msi a520m pro can't. How he know that ? How i can notice this ?

^ One pcle 4.0 nvme

  • 1x M.2 slot (Key M) (from AMD Processor)
    • Supports PCIe 3.0
    • Supports SATA 6Gb/s
    • Supports 2242/ 2260/ 2280 storage devices

if this is your first build, don't waste your effort getting a PCIe 4.0 SSD. Both motherboard slots will operate at PCIe 3.0 speeds. I don't see any need to go PCIe 4.0 for a platform that won't go beyond PCIe 3.0

What will you use this system for? Mentioning your usage scenario and app's will help us two fold.

Link to the video, please. I never said you've invested in your build, now did I?

Please stick to one thread, unless you want spaghetti brains.

Thanks a lot for your help. I will go for asrock only for faster nvme support & I also heard for gpu, asrock uses a better stronger pcle slot, so in future I can use dgpu . I am totally confused about msi m.2 nvme support & their build quality is not good although bios design is wonderful
