    There the same for speed to my knowledge, unless you have say 2700x and GEN 4 M2 Nvme device, then you would want to use bottom one and then you find out can't be the boot drive... lol. Guessing this would never happen anyway, not like you buy x570 board for older CPU ZEN chip and latest tech nvme.

    sata mode is supported, specifically it means if you used sata mode M2 and it takes one of the SATA drives. off memory older boards did not always support this in both slots. Most of us use M2 Nvme drive(s) so this does not matter.

    Formula is the same setup. x370 was the same, your x470 is opposite (correct) for pch and cpu control which is why your asking.

    Then micro boards throw this in the air and other brands as well.
    Recent run with my setup

    Hope you find this of help.
    Thanks for your answer.
    I'm not so good with english, but I think I got the point... with CH8 Formula I should be able to use the M2 slot controlled by the CPU instead of the one controlled by the Chipset (as in my CH7) without perfomance penalties.
