Note

1.When an M.2 device in PCIe mode is installed onto the M.2_1 socket, PCIe x16_2 slot only runs at x1 mode
2.(a) When an M.2 device in PCIE mode is installed, PCIE x16_2 slot only runs @ x1 mode and SATA6G_1 port is enabled.
(b) When an M.2 device in SATA mode is installed, the M.2 device uses the SATA6G_1 bandwidth. SATA6G_1 port is disabled.
3.Only M.2_2 socket can support Intel® Optane Memory. Intel® Optane Technology is only supported when using 7th Generation Intel® processors. Before using Intel® Optane memory modules, ensure that you have updated your motherboard drivers and BIOS to the latest version from ASUS support website.
