ASUS m.2 x16 expansion card backwards compatibility

Level 7
Hey guys,

was just wandering if anyone could clarify what sort of graceful degradation the expansion card has , specifically if it will work as an m.2 adaptor for a single ssd with a rog m6e. i ask as the price is only 30-40% more than a no name brand single slot card and i am due a MB upgrade in the near future anyway so its just to bridge the gap until then 🙂
