Lenovo P50 - adding SSD M.2 NVMe (Samsung 970 Evo Plus) or other options?

2020-05-05, 6:00 AM

I have been looking around everywhere and can't seem to find a concrete answer. I am looking to upgrade my Lenovo P50 to a 1TB M.2 NVME, looking at: Samsung (MZ-V7S1T0B/AM) 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology.

 

Is this compatible with my Lenovo p50?

 

Or do you have any other recommended options for the quickest SSD available?

Hello,

 

It is an M.2 2280 form-factor SSD, so it should work fine with the ThinkPad P50.  I have two earlier models (512GB Samsung 950 PRO) in mine.

 

Regards,

Thank you very much!

 

I would also need a m.2 bracket for the install, correct?
