    Why on Earth is M.2 the dominant NVMe SSD interface?
    Modern NVMe drives run hot. So hot that they can and do throttle to protect themselves. Do you really want your critical data subjected to that? Consider that modern enthusiast systems equipped with AIO water cooling lack airflow across the board. Then there’s the positioning of many M.2 slots directly adjacent to a hot GPU. It’s not exactly conducive to having a cool running, long life SSD. This will only be exacerbated by PCIe 4.0 drives. Witness the lengths drive and motherboard manufacturers are going to keep SSDs cool. Either drives are coming with pre-attached heatsinks or motherboard makers are resorting to covering half the board with a gigantic cooling apparatus.

    Because they are small, fast, cheap, and marketing pushes those qualities.
