M.2 only designates the form factor.Whats the difference, other than size, between a normal SSD and an M2 SSD ?
Whats the difference, other than size, between a normal SSD and an M2 SSD ?
Says...As always, refer to the manufacturers specs:
I'm using a Ryzen 5 36001 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe x4/x2* SSD support)
- Actual support may vary by CPU.
- Supports only M.2 SATA SSDs when using an AMD Athlon™-series/ 7th Gen. A-series or Athlon™ X4 APU
Ok thanks dude. I'm asking because I saw it on Techsource on YouTube.Right.
And as above "the Intel 660p or Samsung 970 EVO " would be good choices.
The 970 is "faster", but the Intel is much much cheaper per GB.
On that board, different CPU's support different drive types.Ok thanks.
How come it says
As the Ryzen 5 is none of them ?
Ok thanks for the infoOn that board, different CPU's support different drive types.
If you had one of those Athlon CPUs, it would only support a SATA III M.2 drive like the 860 EVO.
The 970 EVO (NVMe) would not work.
Your Ryzen CPU will support either the 860 EVO (SATA) or the 970 EVO (NVMe).
