ASUS Z390 WS PRO and Hyper m.2 CARD

Hello I have recently purchased an ASUS Z390 WS Pro board which I will be using on my personal home workstation.

I'm currently using two RTX 2080 Ti in NVLINK but I plan moving one to another rig so that leaves me with 16x multiplexed lanes from the PEX 8747 free.

I was wondering if the motherboard could bifurcate lanes to fully utilize the ASUS Hyper M.2 card

I have tried asking ASUS support, by email, by facebook and through the website but I haven't even received an answer so far.

Maybe someone who tried it could help me.

Thanks.

Since the lanes are coming from the PCH, you will be limited to 32Gbps of bandwidth. The 128 Gbps is only for Intel VROC using CPU lanes.

The only way to fully utilize the card is via VROC, otherwise you are limited to 32Gbps. Also, no RAID support unless using VROC. You can run 4 SSDs in there, but they will be individual drives (unless you build the array in Windows of course).

If you are looking to only add 1 SSD, I would suggest the Hyper m.2 MINI. That's a single drive expansion card.

I'm actually looking to add 4 m.2 drives in non-raid mode.

As far as I know though I need to bifurcate one x16 slot in 4x/4x/4x/4x to properly use the card because it doesn't have a pcie switch onboard, otherwise it won't show up more than 2 ssds

Looking at the block diagram for you motherboard, I don't think this will work for you. While that slot is 16x, 8x comes straight from the PEX, the other 8x comes from the QSW chip. I'm not sure if the granularity you're looking for (4x/4x/4x/4x) is supported with that setup.

It would be a setting in your BIOS though.

EDIT: Also the ASUS Hyper M.2 is advertised as only supported on X299.

Alright thank you for your contribution, will probably need to buy a Pcie 8x card with a PLX onboard, unless some ASUS rep chimes in and gives me some hints.
