Samsung 960 EVO m.2 with ASUS Z97P

Will the Samsung 960 EVO m.2 be compatible with ASUS Z97P?

Will I have to update my BIOS from what my motherboard came with?

I am not stupid with PC parts, however I watched videos on SATA m.2 drives and just noticed I ordered a NVMe m.2 SSD. This is new stuff for me and I'm quite confused!

Thanks in advance

EDIT: the reason I won't just return the SSD is because if it is compatible I might as well use it now i've ordered it.

  1. You need at least BIOS Version 2801 for NVMe storage.

    Motherboard uses two native PCI Express 2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 10Gbit/s data-transfer speeds. You can double that to 20Gbit/s by using a 4 lane PCI Express adapter.
