I'm buying a Plextor PX-AG128M6e SSD in hope that it can be used as VMware ESXi 6.0 datastore. And I have checked the Wikipedia M.2 page, who says there are three options available for the logical device interfaces and command sets used for interfacing with M.2 storage devices,
- (1) Legacy SATA
- (2) SATA Express using AHCI
- (3) SATA Express using NVMe
So I'm curious to know which one the M6e belongs to. Of course Legacy SATA is not, because its maximum transfer speed exceeds 6Gbps. But is it (2) or (3), and how do I know that from the product spec? or by software method?
I think I need to know that because (2) and (3) seems to require different OS driver.
