Second NVMe drive for Lenovo t580

2018-10-27, 15:55 PM

I have Lenovo t580
with  Samsung PM961 240GB  (M.2,NVMe).
I want to buy second drive Toshiba TS OCZ RC100 Series NVMe M.2 2242 240GB.


Is it possible to do this? I read some things about lose lanes on the secondary PCIe slot or from USB3.0 connectivity.

Option 1: replace existing SSD with larger one 500/512GB or 1TB (with 970 EVO or PRO for example). You ll keep full x4 PCIe speed that way.


Option 2: Use RC100 2242 in 2nd (WWAN) slot. Will operate at x2 speed.


PS BTW PM961 is 512GB not 480GB and lenovo is T480/T580 I suppose  ...
