Good Price for this item, but for the same money you can get a decent NVME drive

is this not an NVME drive?

No, it's a SATA drive. So it'll be a lot slower than nvme drives.

So it slots in to the same pci slot on the motherboard, but it is still just an sata drive.

Everday is a school day for me atm.

I am buying a tomohawk max motherboard, so just so I know, I can buy this or the Sabrent 1tb and they both go in to the same slot, but one is nvme, but this one is not

It slots into the m.2 slot and uses SATA, yes.

Nvme drives use that same m.2 connection but utilise pcie instead and have much higher read/writes.

And yes, that's correct. Though the sabrent drive would be a lot faster. I myself am looking to buy the carbon pro for my 3800x, exciting times!

To complicate matter the Expansion port is called M.2

M.2 devices can come in different lengths, drives are typically 80mm but may be shorter and the expansion port itself can have a pin in any of twelve different places which would then be used to key the slot so only certain types of devices could use some sockets

Thankfully there is generally only three types you see no key slot, M or B keys

Nvme, SATA and mSATA drive have different cutouts to try and prevent you using the wrong one.

The tomahawk specks say it has a M.2 M keyed socket So it should work but you also need to Know how many PCIe lanes the CPU has available to know if you will get full speed through it

A NVMe will offer faster speeds on paper but you could bottleneck it elsewhere depending what else you install in the build

All correct. The nvme drives are much faster but depending on what you use the PC for you may not really notice much difference as the SATA speed is still reasonable and other bottlenecks may influence more. The max board only has one M.2 so I believe it will offer the full speed to the standard sabrent rocket (there is a new rocket 4.0 which requires higher end boards for full speed but that is very expensive currently). As they are the same price roughly i went for the rocket and in tests it is giving the advertised speeds.

i am looking at a ryzen 5 3600 or a 2600x, 16 gb ram 3200 mhz and an rx590 or higher
Just bought for upgrading an old Macbook air which doesn't support nvme, only sata, so this is perfect for me.

It’s not quite as simple

Ryzen 2xxx and 3xxx CPUs have a total of 24 PCIe lanes, but 4 are used to the chipset, leaving 20 for your use.

Usually 16 lanes (PCIe x16) are used for graphics cards that are connected as x16 or 2x8 lanes 4 lanes are dedicated to ‘fast’ storage such as NVMe SSDs.

Putting in components that may need PCIe lanes such as a ‘slow’ SATA controller may mean you have demand for more PCIE lanes than the system has so the chipset has to manage them meaning a component could be operating at a slower speed than they are capable of due to lack of lines or by not having PCIe lanes available
