Storage is provided by a 1TB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD and a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive.

If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the X9 DT-CL5M offers one 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 port that also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C and DisplayPort 1.2, plus one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port and three 5 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports. You'll also be able to output video to an external display HDMI 2.0 and mini DisplayPort 1.4 ports.

Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi are built-in for wired and wireless networking and Bluetooth 4.1 LE technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Content from memory cards may be accessed via a built-in SD card reader that supports UHS-II flash media. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, an internal mic, dual 2W speakers and dual 2W subwoofers with Aorus Acoustic+ technology, and a mechanical keyboard with Aorus Fusion per key backlight control.

General Features

144 Hz G-Sync Display

NVIDIA G-Sync technology syncs the display's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate output to reduce screen tearing and ghosting. Combined with a 144 Hz refresh rate, which helps to eliminate stuttering and jitters, you'll be able to enjoy smooth gameplay and react instantly to your game.

Storage & Memory Upgrades

There is an empty M.2 slot for additional PCIe storage and the memory can be upgraded to 64GB (4 x 16GB).

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Windows 10

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

1 TB M.2 NVMe PCIe What brand/model is this? i would like to add one more for a raid
Asked by: Mike N.
The manufacturer has not specified the manufacturer or model as these may vary within the same model number. Brand and model is fairly irrelevant. Any M.2 NVMe PCIE drive will be fully compatible.
