Not quite sure what this means…:bigsmile:
As this PCI-E card only seems to be an ENCLOSURE,according to the picture…so I think that you still need to add the M.2 SSD’s seperately…will the card coupled together with a SSD cost similar as a SATA SSD?Or will the PCI-E card alone cost around the same as a standard SSD?:confused:

THX for the info,Xercus!:slight_smile:

16 times faster than a standard SATA SSD at a similar cost.

So this should read '16 times faster at 4 times the cost of a similar SATA SSD setup then…:bigsmile::wink:
