M900 Tiny M.2 drive specifications

Hi everyone,

 

I was thinking about getting an M900 Tiny, but I was looking at the spec sheet, and it's not clear if the M.2 slot supports PCIe Gen 3 x4 lanes.  I'm afraid it might only support 2 lanes.  Does anyone know?

 

Thanks!

Re: M900 Tiny M.2 drive specifications

Hi. This link http://goo.gl/f4uTcX shows someone adding a 256 GB Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD PCI NVMe drive to a M900 Tiny and getting excellent results. So I assume from this that the M900 Tiny supports PCIe x4 & NVMe. I'm currently waiting for an ordered M900 Tiny and have purchased an 128GB Samsung SM951, M.2 (22x80) PCIe 3.0 (x4) NVMe SSD drive (MZVPV128HDGM) to use as the OS drive. HTH. Cheers PL

Very good find, thanks for posting.   I checked his test results against the manufacturer's spec for the drive, and they are right on the money for PCIe x4 (and the spec for type M key connector.)   

 

Therefore, the spec for this M.2 slot is:   22 x 80 M.2 slot PCIe x4 with a type M keyed connector for installing 2280 drives with a type M or B+M key.

Re: M900 Tiny M.2 drive specifications

Thanks Al Smiley Happy

 

A quick update from this end: I've now received my M900 Tiny and after initial soak testing I installed the Samsung SM951 drive I'd purchased and did a clean install of Win 10. The Samsung M.2 drive really flies, the Samsung Magician app shows the board to have and be using 4 x 8Gbps PCIe channels with a total throughput of 32Gbps. The Magician simple throughput test shows 2011/677 Mbps read/write.

 

On a general note; I'm REALLY impressed with the M900 Tiny. It seems to be very well made and put together and it is a joy to work with and use. I ran a stress test using Prime95 for an hour or so yesterday and although I heard the fan start up and then increase speed when I was close by I couldn't hear it across the room in a domestic environment. It's certainly a lot quieter than the 5 year old mini tower it's replacing which was built with the best 'quiet' components at the time.

 

Overall a great bit of kit. Smiley Very Happy
