Thanks brummyfan2 for your replies.
Please can you tell me what you look for in the output so as to tell if my Aspire E5-575-50RM running intel i5-7200U with its motherboard supports pci bridge devices capable of a PCIe with nvme based SSD slot.
I see link width is x2 (not x4 ideally as advertised by SSD vendors ) and max speed is 8GT/s per lane in my above outputs. But apart from that what other keywords you are looking at.
I think i cannot get any other detailed PCI devices details other than "lspci -vv" for my linux distro.
if you be specific it helps me rather than waiting for linux expert.
thanks in advance.
Sorry for delay. Thx for your links I am yet to hear from my local Acer service if i can open without getting my warranty void as it is a new laptop just 10+ days.But anyway i got some more details on my laptop:Laptop model : Aspire E5-575 (E5-575-50RM to be precise) Model No: N16Q2CPU is intel i5-7th gen (i5-7200U) as told earlier supports PCIe version 3 with upto 12 lanes but Acer motherboard vacant PCI bridge has only 2 lanes (x2 width).If i don't get +ve from local support i would sacrifice that xtra 3times perf boost and would go for m.2 SATA or external SSD over USB3/type C.
Hi guys,i searched all day to find out wich m.2 ssd i could install into my e5-575g-56ks laptop. there is a m.2 sata 96gb kingston ssd installed already, bud i'd love to replace it with a samsung mz-v6e250bw wich is a 256gb nvme ssd. i downloaded HWINFO64 and it says pretty much the same as shown by pankajn (see attached file) except "slot implemented" says "no". would you please check if i can use the samsung ssd? chat and email support from acer germany don't work.thank you in advance!
