In order to support a M.2 drive, a motherboard with a M.2 slot is needed - but most of those slots only support PCI-E x2 speed. On motherboards without native M.2 slots, or where the native slot is only x2 speed, an expansion card can be used to adapt from PCI-E to M.2. This adapter does just that, as well as providing a heatsink to help cool the controller chips - which often get quite hot on M.2 drives. It can be used on any motherboard with a free PCI-Express x4 (or larger) slot.
