Dualport ssd D3600 in pcie 3x4 port

Jump to solution

Is anyone familiar with how dualport ssds behave when connected to single device? I'm unclear if it will operate at full pcie 3x4 or if it's limited to pcie 3x2 with a single connection. I've also read that if the dual port sense pin doesn't receive a signal it will operate in single port mode at full 3x4.

Hello, Ironclad17.


Thank you for waiting.


I confirmed that when the dual-port SSD is connected to a single port device, the drive will simply work as a regular single port SSD, which will be as a single port PCIe 3.0 x4.


If you have other questions, please let me know, I will follow up on May 6th or let me know if you would like additional time.


Best regards,
