    XI Formula M.2 slots

    Hi.

    I´m going to use two EVO970 m.2 SSD.

    Will I have performance gain in using two m.2 SSDs?, will they both working x4 mode and GPU x16?

    I have 2080ti, I dont want any performance loss.

    9900k only have 20pcie lanes, this a bit confusing.


    Thank you.

    as you can see from diagram, there are 16 lanes from CPU directly to GPU and another 24 lanes from chipset
    so enough for one graphics card and two SSDs
