  • Hi Gorilla warfare,

    That means ASUS HYPER M.2 X16 PCIE 4.0  is not compatible ?  Or  only two slots? One slot I use for GPU

    • Arup sanyal PCIE 4.0 devices are backwards compatible with PCIE 3.0 machines, you just won't be able to take full advantage of the card and depending on the UEFI, it will only show up as a storage device only and not a boot drive.

    • stormson weathers   , Thanks for the reply ... so in that case I will use only as a storage .

      Also since it got 4 slot , can I make raid0 config out of 4 nvme ssd ?

    • Arup sanyal You can. Most of those kind of adapters (such as the
      Dell Ultra-Speed Drive Quad NVMe M.2 Card P/N: 80G5N) will usually show as 4 individual drives. From there you just RAID them normally in Windows or Linux.

  • Did you get this card installed and running. Boot from it?

  • I know this is an old post, but this info may be helpful to those who is interested in this device. The device only supports PCs that utilize PCIe bifurcation (where it can split the PCIe bus, ie: PCIe 16x will become x4/x4/x4/x4). I have tried this card on a Dell T7600, but due to the machine's lack of bifurcation only one NVMe is showing.

    Bear in mind there are other options out there that do support non-bifurcation PCs, but they are costly, but I did find one called a Syba SI-PEX40142 currently going for $55 on Amazon (the company do offer M-key variants that will boot from PCIe on older systems).   However this model is a B-Key variant so performance will be halved, but at the same time still faster than SATA or SAS based mechanical drives.

    Company's website is: https://www.sybausa.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=64_205&product_id=1035

    I did order two today and will post here if they work when I get them.

    for those interested I'm posting the amazon listing below that feature all 3 variants.

    • stormson weathers Just responding back regarding the card. I got the card and just realized I only have NVMe drives, so I've ordered some M.2 SATA drives and should be here by the 13th, I'll try then when I get them.
