MSI was world’s first brand to introduce M.2 Shield (patent pending) to ensure maximum M.2 device performance. With the introduction of Intel® Optane Memory, M.2 Shield is a perfect tool to enhance its boosting capabilities. M.2 Shield is a thermal solution, which keeps the M.2 or Optane™ device safe and cool to prevent damage and thermal throttling. Similar to Optane Genie, M.2 Genie makes setting up RAID easy by taking less steps, using any M.2 or PCI-E SSD (even when used in a mixed configuration).
