What is Oculink?

So this board im getting tommorow is an Asus Z11PA-U12 and it has Dual OCuLink for efficient connections to NVMe devices is this another formfactor id have to buy special drives for or what? kinda curious to understand what it is, as everytime i google it i get mentions of Thunderbolt.

anyone care to ELi5 and help a guy out?

This is the first link I get if I just type in OCuLink and search using Google :wink:

The nice way of saying LMGTFY

Kind of Thunderbolt. PCI Express - Wikipedia

Edit: Kind of funny looking at this 8x pcie to OCuLink card, it’s really not much going on there.
