    The current drives are PCIe 3.0. No reason they would not work with older chips.

    I think the support for NVMe was implemented from haswell. Anything older would be some sort of BIOS/EFI backport for NVMe support, no?
    Its funny how intel pedals the "optane compatible" for several consumer motherboards. These drives should still be standard NVMe interface i suppose..? Will be interesting how that QoS enhancement will play out.

    Maybe the Kaby lake requirement is for Optane DIMMs...

    That's apparently for a consumer lvl caching system using a 32-64GB M.2 device.

    Hmm... Intel and micron will develop/release the second generation of 3d xpoint together but the third gen is going to be intel only...
