Lenovo Legion Y520 SSD support

Dear Lenovo community,

I am considering an ssd upgrade. I know that my laptop (Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBN) supports m.2 NVMe gen 3.0 x4, but is it compatible with gen 3.0 x2? I found some good deals, they are actually about half the price of an x4 ssd Smiley Happy...

Also, what length does it support? I found a link for the ssd that comes in it (in higher configurations), so is that the maximum length?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Re: Lenovo Legion Y520 SSD support

according to the Y520 PSREF (Product Specifications Reference) the X2 model is not listed, I think only X4 is compatible

and for the length, it supports up to M.2 2280 which is 80mm (8cm) long, if you want tp put the smaller version you'll need and adapter for that

so, the M.2 drive that will fits with no problems, is the M.2 2280 NVMe

Hi Faniel007, i had the same question because i have bought pcie 3.0 x2 NVMe by mistake. After a while i decided to try it on Legion y520-15ikbn and it works, so it seems that it is compatible even if it's not listed.

Dear AM_Y520,

will the new SSD 500Gb Samsung 970Evo fix in ? At the moment I have a Samsung 128Gb NVMe MZVLW128.

Hi smj71
If the SSD is m.2 2280 It should fit in. If its 2260 i think that you'll need adapter for it. Just make sure that it's NVMe and not SATA since SATA is not supported for Y520-15IKBN
