Crycial P1 NVME SSD 1TB with Startech PCIE Adapter

In order to accelerate my Video editing I decided to invest in NVME SSD. I have purchased Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD – CT1000P1SSD8. But turned out that my mother board doe not have M.2 connector so I had to invest in PCIe to M2 adapter. After quite a bit of research I got this one from StarTech.com – PEXM2SAT32N1 M.2 Adapter . It has 3 Port – 1 x PCIe (NVMe) M.2 – 2 x SATA III.

SoftwareOS CompatibilityOS Independent; No additional drivers or software required

Note: When installed in a compatible operating system, the card is natively supported and doesn’t require any additional drivers or software. However, your operating system must natively support PCIe SSDs (NVMe – Non-Volatile Memory Express).
Special Notes / RequirementsSystem and Cable RequirementsA computer enabled with PCI Express (PCIe), and an available PCI Express x4, x8, or x16 slot
One or two SATA host ports on the host computer (for example, the SATA controller card, or the motherboard SATA ports inside of your computer)
NoteThe maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface. If used with PCI Express Gen 1.0 enabled computers, the max throughput is 2.5Gbps per lane. If used with PCI Express Gen 2.0 enabled computers, the max throughput is 5Gbps per lane.
System and Cable RequirementsAn operating system that natively supports PCIe SSDs (NVMe), such as:
– Windows® 8 and later
– Mac OS 10.10.3 and later
