How many NVMe SSD can I put in the Thinkpad P53?

2019-06-22, 0:47 AM

In the promotion video, they showed a 4TB drive inside the machine. As I know, the max size of NVMe SSD is 2TB right now. How many NVMe SSD can one put inside the machine?

Official US website says P53 supports RAID 5.

Therefore, definitely THREE.

Hello,

 

I do not have any inside information or knowledge but strictly as a guess, I would imagine it could mean 1 x 2.0TB M.2 2280 drive and 1 x 4.0TB 2.5" SATA drive, or 2 x 2.0TB M.2 2280 drives and one 2.0TB 2.5" SATA drive,3 x 2.0TB M.2 2280 drives,

 

Micron and Angelbird both make 8TB 2.5" SATA SSDs, but I'm not sure if these are 7.5mm or 9mm high drives.  If the P53 does have a 2.5" SATA bay, drives like these might be one way to get more than 6TB of storage, although it would be non-NVMe as well as likely to be very expensive and not warrantied by Lenovo.

 

Regards,
