    Because you bundle 2 of your 3 hottest components right onto each other?
    Because your GPU heats up the already cooling challanged PCIe 5 M2s?

    I don't know but maybe I'm overlooking something here :D

    Nice idea but wouldn`t be better to have a dedicated slot built in on the MB instead of in the GPU?

    from what i can see in the picture its a pcb for two nvme drives with a gpu like fan on top.
    it looks like a gpu board but there is no display output.
    asus on the other hand presented what you discribed above. A gpu with a slot for a nvme drive.
    what msi presented here is actually usable ,despite the jokes ,i like it :)

    I didn't see anything about it being a GPU as well.

    Yes, it's not a GPU, I noted it the wrong way around in my post you guys quoted. But at the same time if you put a dGPU and one of those in, probably the M2s are below the GPU... so you will involuntarily have heat rising to the top, and the air the GPU sucks in will be hotter. That's my impression.
