Hello.

I have bought x2 NVMe SSD's and I have heard that it can affect my GPU-performance if I install both of them.
I need help to figure out what to do and where to install them.
The manual is not doing it for me...

Specs:

Motherboard: Asus Rog Strix B450-F Gaming.
1st NVMe: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 250GB.
2nd NVMe: WD Black SN750 1TB
GPU: Gigabyte RTX 2080 Super.
CPU: Amd Ryzen 3900X

Thanks in advance!

look like it correct
*4 When the M.2_2 is occupied by M.2 device, PCIe x16_1 will run at x8 mode.

Is there an article that explains what this actually means? I'm a scrub when it comes to.. MOBO M.2 slots, I only got one M.2 because my mobo had a similar disclaimer, but it does have another slot. I'm just not sure what that quote actually means :unsure:

where?


it mean if you put any m.2 device on the m.2_2 slot, it will take x8 away from the first pciex16 slot
When the M.2_1 Socket 3 is operating in SATA mode, SATA port 2 will be disable.

My bad, it's not the same thing I guess.
