I'm newbie with pc-building and I found the gigabyte's page of the product this:

1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4/x2 SSD support) * Supports only M.2 SATA SSDs when using an AMD Athlon™ 200-series/ 7th Generation A-series or Athlon™ APU.

And now my question is: Does that note mean that I can only use M.2 SATA when I have an Athlon and if I have ryzen only PCI-E? Or maybe that it doesn't support PCI-E with Athlon and with ryzen both? I have an M.2(B+M) SSD that should support both, but I'm not sure if it will be compatible with a ryzen 2600X.

    Hi, Welcome to Hardware Recs! In general, our affiliate site Super User is better equipped to handle questions regarding technical support and/or compatibility. If your intention was to ask for a M.2 SSD upgrade, you should re-edit your question to minimize chance of closure. Nov 4 '18 at 1:49

It is indeed an ambiguous wording, but it definitly means that Athlon / 7th gen APU will only allow SATA mode and others will allow both.

So you won't be limited to SATA with your A1000 with a 2600X.
