Bought the 256GB because of no reason other than YOLO. I'll try to get some stats for it in a few weeks.

Stats seem pretty good. Here's a full dump of info on the 256GB one I just installed.

Is this really a B+M key (I.e. 2 keys (slots) in the card)? If so, I'm assuming that this will be slower than an M.2 "M" keyed NVMe, but faster than a M.2 SATA.

For example an 970 EVO M.2. NVMe would be much higher than 1500 MBps read while this card maxes out at that speed?

the 970 is faster, but NOT for that reason
the presence of the keys indicates compatibility, not a limitation on throughput
