*eeeeh* yeah, looks like someone did create an NVMe to USB bridge chip, which is the JMicron JMS583. Several things to note:There are now a couple of USB-NVMe adapters (though it seems there are numerous compatibility issues and they only fit up to 2280):
Not much of a point to them, though, as the USB interface (even 3.1gen2 10 Gb/s) severely limits the throughput to not much more than what a SATA SSD would provide. Only practical purposes I can think of for such adapters are data recovery and imaging.
Yes thunderbolt 3 is support but did not want to got that route due to cost of the enclosures but it may be the only option. But performance would definitely be a big +.What are you connecting it to? Any chance it supports thunderbolt? There's quite a few enclosures you could use if it does.
