You're going to be more specific when you say "Mini PCI Express".

Are you referring to MiniCard? or ExpressCard?or something else?

MiniPCIe to MXM convertor?

I thought MXM-based videocards were made to just drop into a miniPCIe slot.

Just remember that what may appear to be a miniPCIe connectors may not follow the spec.

The FLASH_CON socket in the SSD-based EeePC models is a good example of this. While it has the same physical dimensions and mounting holes as a miniPCIe slot, it is actually a proprietary connector combining SATA, PATA66 and USB2.

If you want to drop a true miniPCIe device into an EeePC, you'll have to use the slot occupied by the Wifi card, which is true PCIe.

I'm disappointed that companies like SuperTalent, MyDigitalSSD and Patriot refer to this as miniPCIe, spreading misinformation, although Patriot at least calls it the "Eee PC PATA Mini PCI-e interface".

MXM is not the same as MiniCard



For starters, there's four different form factors for MXM.

MiniCard, only one.
