Dimapur, Feb. 9 (EMN): Asus is doing away with the tiny screws that hold down M.2 drives in the motherboard and is replacing it with a new clip system.

According to a Twitter video on the official ROG Global account, Asus showed off the new latch system called a Q-latch that will replace the traditional screws on all 14 of Asus’s new X590 motherboards.

The new Q-latch is a welcome change for most PC builders since the traditional screws were so easy to lose and the new latch system makes it easier to replace M.2 drives.

M.2 NVME SSDs are getting popular with PC enthusiasts as they are much smaller and much faster than their 3.5 inch SATA drive siblings. They are costlier too but their portability and fast read/write capabilities make it an attractive proposition for PC owners all over the world.
