Basically only SM951, XP941, or the Kingston HyperX Predator are known to work OOTB on cMP. SM951 / XP941 is really hard to found now (MUST be AHCI, NOT NVMe).

For HyperX Pradator, you can buy the version with the adaptor, so DT120 is not required.

I worry about leaning too heavily on these AHCI drives - when they fail, where are you going to find a replacement? They seem to be rapidly disappearing.

1) Go back to SATA SSD, they are still very fast for most of the job.

2) Go for NVMe and install the 3rd party kext (if still no native driver at that moment). It's an option. Boot drive won't benefit from PCIE SSD anyway. If require boot drive, go for option 1.

3) move away from Mac (e.g. consider hackintosh)

4) TBH, only the new SSD disappearing fast. The used market still there.

5) move to the upcoming 7,1 (if that's really what we want)
