For anyone who's curious what this is, this is basically just a SSD that you plug into a PCIe expansion slot instead of a SATA port. They're much more expensive than a regular SSD, but they're also much faster, too.

Hopefully this helps anyone who wants to know more about this kind of thing.

And some motherboards have issues booting off of them.

I could be wrong on this next part, but it also uses 4 lanes of PCIe, and when combined with a high end GPU using 16 lanes (gtx 1070 for example) I believe can create a bottle neck on many systems. Many of intels i7's from 2014 have only 16 lanes. Could see negative effects for high GPU/HDD applications like video rendering.
