System Buses & Bandwidth

In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

ASUS HYPER M.2 x16 Card V2, PCIe 3.0 x16, 4x M.2 PCIe 2242/60/80/110 Slots, Upto 128Gbps, Intel VROC + AMD Ryzen Support is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit that does the job as advertised While I have a motherboard with 2 NVME slots (1 occupied), installing another would have required removing the GFX card and soundcard to shift the heatsink plating. Plus, I wanted to have more than 2 drives, so this card provided the perfect solution. It is absolutely worth paying the extra cash than lower priced adapters for the cooling fan, heatsink and plating this one offers. Just make sure before you buy this, that your system can support this as it requires: A x16 PCI-Express 3.0 slot, and your BIOS needs to support Hyper M2 x16 mode if it is an Intel system (PCIe RAID Mode on an AMD system). If you have an ASUS BIOS like me, you can check this by going into the BIOS, pressing F7 for advanced mode, then going to the advanced section, then CPU Storage Configuration, and going to one of your PCI-Express slots to see if the Hyper M2 x16 option is available. There are mounting bolts for all 4 slots, though I found they were all hidden away in various bits of the box, so make sure to look carefully before discarding/storing it away! Worth noting as well that this card is for generation 3 NVME drives, so do not get this if you plan on buying generation 4 NVME drives, as you will not get the extra speed from the extra premium you would be paying for. At the time of this review, for a drive that offers the best between capacity, speed and value for money, I would highly recommend the Sabrent 2TB Rocket NVME M.2 2280 which comes in at around £240. It benchmarks at around 90% of the speeds of its Samsung EVO 2TB counterpart (but costs around £440) comes with a 5-year warranty, and links you to free drive cloning software should you need it. As a final note, while you can use NVME drives in a RAID setup, due to the latency caused by RAID drivers, you lose upwards of 40% of the speed gains you would otherwise enjoy than if you ran these drives all separately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well on Gigabyte X399 Designare Ex Solid build. Only concern is the tiny fan but the whole metal shroud acts like a heat sink any way so not concerned about heat. Fan is not too noisy but may irritate some - my GFX card fan is noiser so overrides it. There is a switch to turn off the fan. Fits into one slot only (16 lanes for 4 NVMEs, 8 lanes for 2 NVMEs). Make sure your motherboard has an updated BIOS that supports bifurcation (4x/4x/4x/4x for 16 lane slots, x4/x4 for 8 lane slots) and all should be good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work on my MB Thought this would work with mu ASUS maximus X1 hero mother board, sorry to say, even on the PCIEx16 slot only one M.2 drive was shown.

Can this be used in any motherboard with a PCIEx16 Slot

it isn't clear from the description whether this can be used to add in M.2 SSD to any motherboard with a PCIEx16 slot - can it only be used for Intel Vroc or the Ryzen equivalent, or can it be used just to add M.2 storage?
Asked by: RickyKemp
In order for your system to be able to recognise more than a single disk connected to the card, the PCIe slot the card is plugged into must be "bifurcated" into 4x4x4x4 mode in the motherboard's BIOS / UEFI. Many motherboards do not support bifurcation. If that's the case with your motherboard, your only options are to either upgrade to a motherboard that supports bifurcation or buy a card that has bifurcation built in (which would probably cost the same as a new motherboard).

Does it work on Mac Pro 5.1 on 16x pcie ?

Asked by: Macdi707
Good Morning, Unfortunately, we have not tested this so we would not be able to guarantee this would work, some similar devices we have tested have worked but will only show one drive. I would recommend speaking with Apple regarding this, they should be able to help you with this. Kind Regards,

Asked by: Justin
Good Afternoon. From what I can see, this should work fine. Although, I would recommend logging a message with our technical support department to double-check this as they are more technically minded in that team. https://www.scan.co.uk/help/scan/contact/technical-support Kind Regards,
