    NVMe SSD on NUC6i5SYK?


      I am getting contradicting information here so just wanted to be absolutely sure.


      This thread says it will work:

      6i3SYH NVMe boot support?

      In this one there's a debate:

      Problem with installation of Win 10 on Intel SSD 600p Series 256GB / M.2 2280 / M.2 NVMe


      If I stick to Windows 10 am I going to have problem with M.2 NVMe SSD on NUC6i5SYK?


      If it's going to work will this thing offer substantial performance improvement over M.2 SATA SSD?


      I'm looking at Samsung 850 EVO versus 960 EVO:

      SSD 850 EVO M.2 250GB Memory & Storage - MZ-N5E250BW | Samsung US

      SSD 960 EVO M.2 250GB Memory & Storage - MZ-V6E250BW | Samsung US


      From the specs it sounds like both sequential and random R/W more than doubled.


      I mostly use apps like Internet Explorer, Office and Adobe Acrobat and stuff like that so in reality would this translate into noticeable difference?
