If only somebody could afford to populate each slot and have the correct CPU platform for this to be useful

Does it work with Intel SSDs only? I have 7700k and ROG 270F not sure if works?!

I would install some Corsair MP500 on it.

It should work with all PCI-e SSDs as far as I can tell.

If I had the money I'd buy this and populate all sockets with 2TB m.2 SSDs and completely remove my SATA drives entirely. Such a clean build it would be.

the problem is that you need to tell the cpu that the x16 slot is divided into 4 x4 connections, and many boards/cpu configs don't support it

True, but the market clientele for this kind of device would also be able to afford (if money was a factor, I don't know if it is) whatever motherboard supported it.

Hey maybe I will replace the MSI one I bought after it was shown about a year ago with this.

Oh wait no, that never actually came out /eyes roll.

Good to know I would lose up to 42% of my performance though

My ASUS 270F actually support this feature, so yeah, I can do it.

It is not that much more expensive to go with m.2 vs SSD, and the speed benefit is insane. I don't know anyone who would benefit from 4 NVME drives in RAID 0, but 4 separate NVME drives connected directly to CPU are a revelation for those who need multiple I/O operations for their workload. We always use multiple smaller drives rather than one large for music production (one for libraries, one for scratch, one for recording...) Makes things run smoother. I still don't think SATA SSDs would become obsolete in the near future, but having cable free system would be a joy.

This is still very new technology. It would need time to find proper use. But to have an option is very good.

I'd rather have some SATA drives hidden in a false floor or behind some cover, with the only hint being the SATA cable than another PCI-Card that doesn't fit to the rest of my config so the last thing I'd call this is clean.
