Do you remember when expansion cards were used for what is now a basic motherboard feature? I do and the nostalgia is strong with all of the current expansion cards now hitting the market.




Meet the SilverStone ECM20, a "Dual M.2 to PCI-E x4 and SATA 6G adapter card," announced recently in a press release. Supporting up to two M.2 SSD's simultaneously, this device converts one M.2 port into a PCI-E x4 interface and a second M.2 port into a SATA interface.


Currently on the market for $17.87 (15.5 Euro), this card includes in optional low-profile expansion slot and required no drivers to function.
