Product Overview Performance & Stability: GIGABYTE M.2 PCIe SSD

Host Memory Buffer (HMB)
The Host Memory Buffer (HMB) feature utilizes the DMA (Direct Memory Access) of PCI Express to allow SSDs to use some of the DRAM on PC system, instead of requiring the SSD to bring its own DRAM.
*HMB feature is only supported by Windows 10.

Breaking the Barriers of SATA Limitations with Outstanding Performance
GIGABYTE M.2 PCIe SSD provides performance for your daily computing tasks by utilising some of the best controllers & NAND flash memory available. This results in sequential read speeds up to 1200 MB/s, & sequential write speeds up to 800 MB/s, making the GIGABYTE M.2 PCIe SSD deliver a faster data transferring experience compared to regular 2.5" SATA solid state drives.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Questions & Answers

What slot does the SSD require

The title says PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe. I'm wondering whether the SSD really is NVMe or is it what it looks like a PCIe SATA M.2 SSD? Traditionally NVMe M.2 is two gold bars but this drive has both M and B bars which you traditionally see on SATA M.2 drives.
