M.2 Adapter Option Added to Intel 750 Series SSD
When the Intel 750 Series SSD was launched Intel hoped that motherboard manufacturers would adopt the U.2 PCIe connector. It has been over a year since then and that hope did not come true at all. To overcome the outcome of such events, Intel is now providing an M.2 adapter option to the Intel 750 series SSD.
The U.2 appeared in only a hand full of motherboards. It seems that Intel will now be rectifying their error by providing a U.2 to M.2 adapter. This will allow users to connect their Intel 750 Series SSD to their motherboards without getting a separate adapter. This simple addition will solve the problems of many PC users that already use or want to use the Intel 750 Series SSD.
With SSD storage becoming inexpensive day by day, it was evident that Intel would provide a solution to this problem. Instead of changing the connector on the SSD, Intel has opted to cleverly provide an M.2 adapter along with the SSD.
The new SKU of the Intel 750 Series SSD will be hitting the market soon so be sure to check which one you need. Be careful about which option you opt for. Purchasing will start this summer so you can opt for this cable then.
This new SKU will make lives more easier for the SSD users that are looking for faster storage and boot times. It is good to see that Intel is giving up on its previous ambitions of the U.2 connector and giving the user the traditional M.2 option out of the box.
It seems that waiting a year to make this change was a dull move but it is better late than never. We will be getting this U.2 to M.2 cable with the upcoming SKU of Intel 750 Series SSDs and it will make things a lot more easier.
