Predator 15 G9-593-76D7 Second SSD

Hello,

 

I'm wondering if the mainboard of my laptop has an additional SSD Port for a second SSD (not counting the SATA Port for the HDD, since it is to slow) without having to get rid of the primary M.2 SSD.  If yes, does anyone know the specs for the second port? Does it support NVME/PCIE?

@CountDeVil,

... the second SSD-slot requires a B-key?

Yes, that's correct but most SSDs M.2 SATA are B and M key so no problem. Example.

 

@vorob,

So the second slot doesnt support PCIe X4 NVMe speeds?

Yes, only SATA.

Hello,

 

It's very easy to check it by removing the door located on the bottom of the laptop (only two screws):

  • 1st slot
    CON5102: SSD M.2 2280 SATA 3.0 and PCIe X4 NVMe (both supported)
  • 2nd slot
    CON5103: SSD M.2 2280 SATA 3.0

As the SSDs are superposed, you'll need a small metal bracket.

Thank you. Only one followup: I read in some forums, that the second SSD-slot requires a B-key? Is that right?

What is B and M keys?

They deskribe the shape of the connecting part of the SSD. Just like a key. There are notches in the SSD card that correspond with the hooks in the SSD port. There are three types M-key, B-key and MB-key. The latter fits in both SSD ports. Here is a helful link:
