Unfortunately our sample seemed to be contaminated with finger oils on the paper stickers, so we could not easily see the chips used, but we have included them anyway for reference.
The M.2 connector; make sure you have this on your motherboard before purchase, it doesn’t fit anywhere else.
The M.2 connector is just like installing memory, only weirder.

First up, CrystalMarkx64. We set the bench to run three times with nine passes each, we then took the highest result.
