I'm wanting to understand what the M.2 SSD Is used for! What I know I can have a SSD or HDD to put my OP on so I read that the M.2 is up 10mbps and it is better than a standard SSD which I think is only 6mbps. What should I use it for? Thank you for the help!

10gb/s. the m.2 sata if in a certain port can use up to 10gb or 32gb/s. some ports are only 6gbs. regular ssd using sata 3 ports top out at 6gb/s. you need a mobo with a m.2 sata port.
