    My understanding is your motherboard needs to support M.2 NVMe protocol to get the higher performance and is only available with the new Z170 chipset.

    On my wish list for my next build which will be a while as the wife wants to tour England (and maybe a few other countries) next year.

    Mine supports M.2 NVMe, on a X99 board in my specs. Right next to the PCIe M.2 connection it even says 10 Gb /s. So i felt not worth it to get Samsung 950 Pro then, I have 850 Pro SSD i 'll survive.

    Good luck with vacation, Nice !

    Late here. Just got new system up and running. Threw in the two 950 pro's and made a quick array to play with. First runs look promising. Will try to optimize some more over the next couple of days...

    This is from Gigabyte on your board.

    * Only AHCI mode is supported when an M.2 PCIe SSD or a SATA Express device is installed.
    NVMe mode is not supported on X99 chipset.

    Yes i see that now, but BIOS F6 i have shows support for MVMe http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...?pid=5138#bios
    What your saying i am not sure because in the BIOS no mode for MVMe what mode would i switch to only IDE and AHCI. I would use an M.2 drive as the primary OS drive and the other SATA Express for secondary drives and so on. Gigabyte told me it would then eliminate SATA ports 4 and 5 if i used a M.2. I have 0-5 SATA Ports.

    One strange thing is access time is slower then my SSD, as mine is at 0.03ms

    Not sure if it has anything to do with mine being in an array as opposed to a single drive

    Just checked some single 950 results and response times were about same as array so that is probably not the answer.

    Just an observation on my part as i have 3 SSD's with better access time then you are showing. Since i am not familiar with using an M.2 was why i posted this thread.

    Hi,

    NVMe mode is not supported on X99 chipset.
    From what I've read about it, it's not so much a chipset matter but rather a bios support matter.
    Obviously, since this is relatively new, you'd rather find NVMe support on new boards were bios updates are more active than on older boards that have been superceded.

    Cheers,
