supposedly all AM4 mobos have two NVMe slots

Unless I’ve misunderstood, mine only has one slot: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B450M-PRO-VDH-MAX/Specification

Hence my ‘supposedly’ comment. I picked up the original M2 quote from a Reddit thread:

“Most AM4 Motherboards shown at CES (at least the ones using X370 and B350 chipsets) were configured with 2 M.2 Slots:”

My guess is that the AM4 spec allows for two slots but of course the mobo manufacturers can pare down the peripherals to save money.

The MSI X370 has two slots for example.  However the devil is in the detail as some M2 slots only support the slower PCIe2 storage devices.

I think I am going to have to read a lot of detailed spec sheets!
