Storage: SATA Express onboardSATA Express is PCI-E Gen2 x2 storage (10Gb/s)SATA-E ECO system still not readySATA-E SSD devices possible in Q3, affordable in Q2 2015No Intel support for SATA ExpressAsmedia chip delayed, technical issues


One MSI Z97 model will have SATA Express onboard the Z97S SLI PLUSWhen using SATA Express the M.2 slotwill be disabled (shared slot)

Storage: SATA ExpressSATA Express is PCI-E Gen2 x2 storage with similar speeds (10Gb/s) like M.2. Because the SATA Express ECO system is not ready MSI offers flexible M.2 to SATA Express cards. SATA-E SSDs sampling in Q2, for sales in Q3, affordable in Q2 2015No Intel support for SATA-Express3rd party host solutions delayed


Storage: M.2Next gen. mSATA based on PCI-E Gen2 x2 interface Up to 10 Gb/s, much faster than SATA 3.0 (6 Gb/s)Healthy eco system, M.2 SSDs widely availableNotice: M.2 devices are available in SATA3 interface (slow) and PCI-E interface (fast)All newly designed Z97 motherboards come with M.2


Intel Gigabit LAN

The MSI Z97S SLI Plus motherboard come with Intel Gigabit LAN to help reduce CPU overhead and ensure a stable and fast responding internet and network connection.
