|Sky Z7 R2: Running RAID 0/1/5 with PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSDs|
Sep 22, 2021
Sky Z7 R2 has four M.2 slots for storage. Three of the M.2 slots are NVMe PCIe 3.0 and one M.2 is NVMe PCIe 4.0. The PCIe 4.0 slot can utilize the faster PCIe Gen4 SSDs.
This single PCIe PCIe 4.0 SSD cannot be included in any type of RAID setup on your Laptop. Only the 3 NVMe PCIe 3.0 drive can be used in RAID 0/1/5 RAID.
The reason for this is that the technology used in the PCIe 4.0 slot is not compatible with the PCIe 3.0 based SSDs to be together in a RAID array.
