    Default Demystifying the current SSD crop...

    Those guys over at HardOCP have put a great "State of the SSD Market" type article up.

    It does a great job demystifying the current crop of SSD connectors & protocols.

    Short, but good read.

    Yeah, I think one of the interface Options Intel has shown is a cable connected M.2. So a 2.5" Form factor with a cable going to the M.2. PCIe connector. I seem to recall it in one of the announcements for Intel drives anyway.

    I'm not sure what you mean by a basic SSD. Do you mean a 2.5" SATA (AHCI) SSD? If so, then connecting it to an M.2 wouldn't really buy you anything. Having said that, there are PCIe boards with 2.5" SATA ports and mounting hardware on them so you can add a 2.5" SSD to an older PC (like this:Sonnet - Tempo SSD PCIe Card Adapter) Not really a 2.5 to M.2 adapter...but might be as close as we ever see.
