These drives are all about NVMe, using NVMe you'd get the most out of these drives.
Your missing my question, I didn't ask if I have NVMe support. I asked if I can boot from the 960 Pro and you sadly proceeded to derail my valid question. Trying to turn this around on me and get a rise out of me is very sad. We have better things to do with our time bud.
So then why does Windows then load and use only the NVMe drivers on a BIOS only system? Windows has been loading the NVMe drivers all year long on my father's old school BIOS system. Everyone else says they installed the NVMe drivers without fail and we max out our PCIe slots speeds using this SSD. Anyway garikfox, It doesn't matter if you mod bios for a living for Asus or Gigabyte or otherwise, I have modded just as many BIOS's too. Besides, what does that have to do with anything I asked? I didn't ask for a debate about NVMe and this debate sort of derails the conversation and my question. I didn't ask for a debate bud, as I already know 100% that it works flawlessly on my system, and I see no where where I asked for a debate. So I am NOT missing any point, I am only missing the answer to my question.
Anyways, why are you telling me I am missing the point when I AM THE ONE WHO ASKED THE QUESTION, NOT YOU? It still works and it still uses the NVMe drivers upon boot regardless. All the tests prove it. I don't care if it uses IDE, AHCI, LMAO, NVMe, ETH, BLT, SUC, EFK, ITH, EMH, VGR, AGP, PCI, USB, USA, USSR, SATA, MOLEX, or any ABC acronym for that matter. The question is, does the 960 boot on my board like the 950 does, yes or no? Can we please try to answer that question, instead of causing a ugly debate please?
Here it is crystal clear:The point (and question) is NOT about NVMe being inside the BIOS! THE point is, IT BOOTS on my BIOS only system, and many others, and my question is, does the 960 also boot too?
<-- This is the ONLY question AND the ONLY point of this conversation!!! I didn't ask if my BIOS has a built in NVMe module
, I asked if the 960 Pro boots on my board like the 950 does?
THAT is the only question to answer here please. Thank you! If you can't answer that question, then that is OK too. I just want the question answered, but please not a debate about protocols used.
