    Modify a board for SSDs that are not even in the market yet?

    What's the lead time for a minor change like that?

    I mean, it requires re-routing PCIe wires through the PCB. So a complete PCB respin, re-testing, and validation cycle for a drive that you cannot buy yet.

    You have to remember, ASRR does not have huge volumes. So that probably adds several tens of dollars to the motherboard to support a drive that few, if any, users will utilize.
