What if your system will Accept PCIe m.2 drives like this, but NOT NVMe ? is this backwards compatible ?

How come your systems does not support NVMe? What motherboard do you have? And I would assume so I don’t see why it wouldn’t.
it's an older one now, when i built the system it had a samsung SM951 m.2 drive installed using a PCIe x4 speed adapter, to give max speeds of the m.2 format right from the get go, and as you may be aware, those SM951's weren't plug and play, they were not meant for retail sale, only sony so they could keep the market by the balls drip feeding speed increases at premium upgrade costs, ASROCK stuck 2 fingers up to this and released full speed m.2 slots right away, just after this board was made, so i had to get a bios written to accommodate UEFI as a boot drive, via their support page, not sure if they have made a new one to cover NVMe as it was a few years ago i bought it now. (ASROCK Z87M OC Formula) and the newer bios on the site at the time, did not cover UEFI booting.


SAmsung used to do 2 versions of these drives, AHCI and NVMe (both PCIe connection type) but as they now only do NVMe i wondered if thye'd built in dual compatibility, or as microsoft and intel wants, simply abandoned previous generation hardware

Hmmmm I’m completely understand what you mean. I’m sure if you did a bit of research or you could contact Samsung them selves to ask? I don’t see why it wouldn’t, would be silly not to release driver for it? But you never know?

No, AHCI and NVMe drives are mutually exclusive.
