    Can I use a gen 3 m.2 in a gen 2 slot?

    I did not initialize/setup the disk (I assumed this would occur automatically). Disk management allowed me to do this, and then setting up a simple volume on the now unallocated drive option is what I needed to do. Thank you for your response, sorry to have wasted your time!

    Can I use a gen 3 m.2 in a gen 2 slot?

    No, I am only using the primary m.2 and primary pcie slot for my discrete graphics I'm concerned the 660p cannot run in pcie 2.0, and is incompatible, a consideration I hadn't made when purchasing, I am hoping I am wrong.

    Can I use a gen 3 m.2 in a gen 2 slot?

    I recently purchased an Intel 660p 1TB drive, pci-e 3.0 x4 And have installed it in my ASRock Taichi x470's secondary m.2 slot, which is: 1 x M.2 Socket (M2_2), supports M Key type 2230/2242/2260/2280 M.2 PCI Express module up to Gen2 x4 (20 Gb/s) In device manager I see the hardware, but it is...

    Respawn Bans Over 355,000 Apex Legends Cheaters

    It's a shame so many people feel the need to cheat. Glad they banned a large chunk, I love the game so far, and I'd rather only play with honest players on equal footing.

    Apex Legends Hits 25 Million Players and 2 Million Concurrent Peak in Its First Week

    The locked characters are not overpowered. Everything else is cosmetic, and the game is free to play. Quit the whining. Play a few hours to unlock the character you want. If it's a good game, your going to be putting the time in anyways.

    Sapkowski Reportedly Settles Witcher Lawsuit

    If the game flopped, would he be forced to give back the money he was paid? Furthermore, and under similar consideration, is the game company getting the bulk of that money from this Netflix deal? Since it only exists because of them? Or is the author getting all of that, AND this settlement...

    Subnautica's First Expansion Enters Early Access on Epic and Steam

    I wish all the best for this game company. I bought Sub Nautica just to support them, and haven't really played it. I still regularly play Natural Selection 2, their FPS/RTS hybrid multiplayer game. One of the more complex FPS games on the market. I actually have heard they are partnering up...

    Department of Justice Charges Huawei and Its Executives with 23 Crimes

    The trick is to identify all major adversaries, not just one. Which America does. If you are implying America has been overly focused on Russia, and China has somehow, in some regard been free to fly under the radar as a result, I would disagree. Generally it's good to think your country is in...

    South Korea to Restrict OLED Equipment Exports as Chinese Manufacturing Ramps Up

    Red Dead Redemption 2's HDR Isn't Really HDR

    There are no problems, they just are using blue LEDs to supplement lack of having a quantum dot that produces blue wavelengths. I could be wrong. Evidence to the contrary will change my viewpoint. You don't seem familiar with what I brought up, so, by all means, your own research may yield...

    Amazon Scraps Biased Recruiting AI

    I'm under the impression they are not doing anything so complex, simply trying to replace the human element in the recruiting process. Once they realized the gender skewed results, they scrapped the process. Maybe the realization that led to this was that filtering out indicators of gender in...

    Walmart and Its Subsidiaries to Use Blockchain to Track Food Supply Chain

This extra layer of security governing data integrity is likely what they are going for I think. In a...
