Note

*1 The PCIe x4_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIex1_3. The PCIe x4_3 runs x2 mode by default.

*2 When the M.2_1 socket is operating in SATA mode, SATA port 1 will be disabled.

*3 When the M.2_2 socket is operating in PCIEX4 mode, SATA port 5. 6 will be disabled.

*4 This function will work depending on the CPU installed.

*5 Due to limitations in HDA bandwidth, 32-Bit/192kHz is not supported for 8-Channel audio.
