Hi! Welcome to our forums community. They are both SSD's however they are different in form factor. You can refer to the photo below.

Yes this Samsung NVMe SSD WILL fit in the M.2 slot of your Thinkpad E570.

According to the official document.

http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20E570/ThinkPad_E570_specs.pdf

 

You CAN have BOTH SSDs at the same time in the laptop too.


BUT the NVMe SSD WILL run at half speed.

 


I'm writing from the same model laptop as yours, on which I installed a WD Black SN700 NVMe SSD last year.
E570
Product Number: 20H50078UK

And got screwed over since it says NO WHERE that this laptop's M.2 supports only 2 lanes not 4 aka PCIe 3.0 X 4.

Check this thread. I'm not the only one.

Here a picture of the X2, X4 details from a previous post of mine.

This is the program WD have for their SSDs. Samsung must have something similar.
As you can see down right of the interface speed. My SSD capability is PCIe 3.0 X4 .
But the M.2 connection on my laptop supports only PCIe 3.0 X2 .
If I was able to see this somewhere else. Like in the specs sheet of my laptop model them I would have bought something more fitting.

So yes. This even newer and better than my WD NVMe SSD will fit in this Thinkpad model, but it will run only at ~1500 MB/s Read and ~ 1,200 Write speeds aka HALF because of the 2 missing lanes.
Still this is 3 times faster than the 850 EVO SATA SSD you have, BUT you WILL NOT get what you pay for.
