I ordered a PCI-E EXP GDC which has an NGFF interface. But just opened my Laptop and the current is an NVME SSD on a M-key only Port on the Motherboard. Will that NGFF interface run my eGPU?

If the one you ordered has a cable like this then it will not work in that M-key port. If you have a wifi card that you can remove it might work in that as the wifi is usually an A+E slot. Otherwise you would have to get something with m-keying like the ADT-Link R43SG to go in that NVME slot.

Thanks for the reply @nu_ninja. I’ll have a look at the ADT-Link R43SG and there’s also a new EXP GDC that has M Key. I only realized it after i have bought the NGFF(A+E) interface. That’s why i thought I’d ask before purchasing another 😀 

How’s your experience with the ADT-Link R43SG?

Does anybody have experience with the A/E port for the EXP GDC beast? I’ve been searching everywhere and i can’t find a solid answer to the question, I would assume it does considering they make a cord for it that plugs from the GDC to the A/E port.
