Might be bundled with new motherboards

MSI
If these days you would like to buy a really fast SSD you’re going to choose a M.2 drive. Those drives are not just fast some of them also struggle with overheating issues. A few months ago, MSI introduced the M.2 Shield which is supposed to help keeping the temperatures low. MSI has now announced their latest M.2 cooling solution, which integrates a large M.2 heatsink into the chipset heatsink of your motherboard.

Up to 960GB capacity

ASUS
The ASUS ROG B350-F Strix Gaming is another AMD AM4 motherboard that should help filling gaps ASUS’ AM4 lineup.
