I was also looking at that product some time ago, but didn't find any information on it in this forum.

There's a similar adapter with one positive review on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Bplus-Adapter-Socket-PCeI-base-dimension/product-reviews/B00T8ULDPY

Out of curiosity, are you trying to run 8 GPUs on your motherboard?

The card itself will work as is for the device types it can support, nothing special needed in Ubuntu, however getting it working correctly with a GPU will be hit or miss with that card, if 8 GPU the goal BIOS work also needed

i have experience to instal more than 6vga in 1 motherboard, but it's not easy as you think.
if you want to buy extra pci card, i m sugestion to safe your money and buy new "lowest 2nd motherboard" im using super cheap ecs motherboard price only $20- $30 (include processor) and its working perfect to mining ethereum (not zcash).

Yes the goal is for 8 gpu's but I only have 4 currently.  I made sure that i had no sata drives in 5/6 ports on this motherboard as they share the M.2 port.  It still did not recognize.  I will say I watched 2 videos, 1 of a person installing a M.2 SSD that worked fine and another of a user who had the asus z97 and the bios actually had M.2 options to set.  I dont think it would be a huge custom bios to just get 8 gpu's on this board, maybe with 10+ but it should not be so complex that I cant get 8 working.  Yes I could buy another cheap MB/CPU but I dont want to, If I go that route I might as well do what everyone else does and just build 6 gpu rigs.
