One of the most noteworthy additions to this motherboard is for storage connectivity. Alongside it's M.2 slot this motherboard also has a U.2 slot, which allows this motherboard to be connected to a U.2/NVMe SSD without the need for an M.2 to U.2 adapter.

Over the next year we expect NVMe devices to become much more commonly available, so it is likely that this will be a highly sough after feature in time.
