What is the open M.2 bay on the Y900? Is it NVMe? If so, how many lanes does it support?

2016-07-13, 20:26 PM

The Y900 ships with two M.2 bays: one has a wifi card inserted and the other is free.

Is the free M.2 bay NVMe or SATA? If it is NVMe, how many lanes does it support? The motherboard has five x1 slots and the Z170 chipset so I assume the NVMe slot can support up to PCIe 3.0 x4, but I wanted to check first.

 

If the M.2 bay doesn't support x4 throughput, investing in a SSD like the Samsung 950 wouldn't be worth versus a slower drive.

 

Thank you!

Solved! See the solution

Y900-34ISZ has 1 - M.2 Slot. The Wireless is installed in a mini-pcie slot.

 

The M.2 Slot will accept M.2 SATA SSD and M.2 PCIE 3.0x4 NVME SSDs. I have installed a MyDigitalSSD BPX 480 NVME PCIE 3.0x4 Drive in my M.2 slot. It performs very well, utilizing 4 lanes.
