Would I be able to user pci express 16X graphic card slot for M.2 SSD adapter

john92john92 Posts: 3Member New User
I would like to get M.2 SSD adapter but don't know if it would work on pcie  16x slot, which may be designated for graphic card.

thanks in advance

    Even if the the PCIe bus of the M.2 expansion card is shorter than the x16 port, it should work, theoretically. As long as the card fits, it should work. The x16 port isn't designed for GPUs only, it just has 16 PCIe lanes. The GPU usually is connected there, because it can take advantage of the extra bandwidth provided by the x16 port.
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    The colleague ven98 has already replied! I think this kind of adapter will work, but I think ssd will not reach its maximum performance!

    I have only one M.2 slot for SSD. If I want to add more M.2 SSD, then I have to use M.2 adapter. Do you think this pcie 16x supports M.2 SSD adapter?
