    Question M.2 nVME compatibility...

    Hi All

    I have a quick question regarding nVME pcie m.2 compatibility.

    I've seen a few on the market where the price has tumbled so I'm going to purchase one. I've already established on here that my motherboard (Asus Aura 970 Pro Gaming) will be able to boot windows 10 from one of these.

    However, the device compatibility list Asus provide is a little out dated now. Basically, I want to know if any of the below are supported by my motherboard..? The size of each I have established is able to fit.

    ADATA XPG SX8000 128GB PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280

    MyDigitalSSD BPX 80mm (2280) M.2 PCI Express 3.0 x4 (PCIe Gen3 x4) NVMe MLC SSD

    Both these are within my budget. Any thoughts on performance, etc between the two is also welcome!

    Thanks for your help :-)

    Dont waste your time on a 120GB SSD. They barely hold the OS and drivers size wize and the smaller drives do not perform as well as the larger drives.
    Those you have listed are at the back of the pack performance wise as in less than last generations speeds.
    My advice would be to hold out and get a better drive. At least a Samsung 960 Evo and minimum of 256GB, preferably 512GB.
    No sense in spending money just to be spending it to get bottom of the barrel in performance.

    960 Pro 512GB Sequential read 3500MB/s, 2400MB/s seq write
    your drives, same bench 1800MB/s, 800MB/s sequential write....They both use the same generic Toshiba controller.
