Can the Lenovo z570 Take an SSD?

Hey guys,

So I have a Lenovo z570, and I want to put an SSD in it. Is this possible? If not is there a way to do it like a removable hard drive or something? I play games like Team Fortress 2, Minecraft, and Trove. My laptop is pretty laggy when it comes to games and I thought an SSD would help. I'm not sure if this is the direct issue or maybe I need a better laptop.

Welcome to the Forums Nadeem! 

 

As per the datasheet, you can upgrade Up to 250GB/320GB/500GB/640GB/750GB/1TB 5400pm HDD. Since there is no M2 port, you cant install SSD on your machine.

 

When it comes to lagging, this is normal as the game is running and full GPU is utilized, if the temp increases more than normal & fps drops creating lagging. I suggest you to use the Laptop by placing it on a flat surface for good ventilation.

 

You can also try turning off the adaptive power settings in the Nvidia control panel. Also you may want to look at your cpu usage while playing a game and see if the cpu usage spikes with framerate drops. And see if your games are using all of your video memory.

 

Let us know how you get on.
