    Install HWINFO64, expand Bus, expand PCI Bus, highlight PCI Express Root Port and look for Maximum Link width, if it's 2x, you can use a NVMe SSD

    Thank you
    I checked the laptop with HWinfo64, and saw a PCI Express x 2 drum with a maximum link witdh 2x. So I can upgrade the SSD M2 with NVMe right.

    Why when I asked the Acer Vietnam staff, they told me that my laptop has an M2 PCIe slot but only supports the AHCI protocol, not NVMe.

    Me too, Finally your laptop uses SATA or NVMe?
