ASUS Motherboard With SATA Express ‘SATA 3.2′ Interface Teased

The SATA Express interface has been teased on a ASUS motherboard which looks similar to their recent Z87 Legacy lineup. There’s a possibility that this could be based off the Z97 chipset which Intel plans to launch in Q2 2014. Either that or ASUS could have somehow managed to fuse the SATA Express ports on their current Z87 chipset motherboards.

SATA Express will come in the form of two connectors, one for PCI-E and SSD while the other would be limited to PCI-E and we are looking at a completely new connector design. The SATA Express interface can transmit both PCI Express and SATA signal and will come with a bulky new cable for PCI-E while SATA-IO is said to be making a different one for the SSDs. The connector will be backwards compatible with SATA 3 6GB/s so you can plug in your current SATA 3 compliant devices in to the ports easily.
