Finding specific drives.

How do I filter only NVMe PCI Express 3.0 x4 SSDs in the search/add parts to build page?

I'm sort of confused as m.2 doesn't only find PCIe NVMe and when I tick the various PCIe options under Interface I get optane drives and similar devices.

Thanks for the help.

Yeah it's a little confusing, you've gotta use the M2 (M) option -

(that might include pcie x2 btw)

Tho depending on what you're doing a sata (B+M) m2 might still be a viable option (nvme is epeen for most builds imo)

Thanks for the tip. I have plenty of storage drives for media the thinking behind nvme was to have quickest boot times for reasonably cheap.

Boot/loading time difference between nvme and sata drives is effectively nil so I'd just go for whatever is cheaper at the time.
