As mentioned, we're using an ASUS prototype motherboard and engineering sample adapter to convert the SATA Express signal into a traditional PCIe 2.0 2 lane. It is very important to remember that the numbers you see here today at TweakTown may not be fully indicative of the final numbers you will see on production / shipping systems.

For our test today, we're using the ASUS ROG RAIDR Express, a well performing PCIe to RAID SATA SSD that has an impressive appearance.

 

We're also testing with an early sample SanDisk A110 SSD. The A110 has a native PCIe interface via an M.2 2260 connector. The controller is from Marvell and we're using an adapter provided by SanDisk to allow for PCIe connectivity.
