Is there a significant difference in performance between the 2?

900 is DRAM-less. Typically this means less performance. But, I just read a good review from Tom's Hardware:

Can check my guide [borecraft.com]: the EX900 uses HMB (host memory buffer - system memory) instead of DRAM cache and uses a four-channel controller like the 660p rather than the EX920's eight-channel.

As others stated however, the HP EX900 lacks DRAM making it a somewhat lower-performing model of NVMe. however while the 900 lacks DRAM it does have HMD (see: https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...,5531.html) to compensate.

Performance wise, the EX900 reads at 2,100 MB/s vs. the EX920 with DRAM at 3,200 MB/s.

So there you have it. The 900 is still a fair improvement over SATA restricted SSDs, but not quite up to the level of performance found in those with DRAM.

Jus curious... Won't 16 lane adapter be more faster than a 4 lane adapter... Technically yes but would 4 lane be sufficient to utilize the max speed of the m2 nvme ssd itself?
