ThinkPad T470P NVME SSD

Hi

I purchased my ThinkPad T470P 10 days ago. It has 1TB HDD (5400rpm) preinstalled so I want to replace it with SSD.

Is my ThinkPad capable of using the full potential of NVME SSD or I just need to buy a SATA3 SSD?

I know Lenovo sells these machines with NVME SSDs preinstalled but do they use the same port as my HDD is using right now? What is the interface that my HDD is using right now?

Regards

Re: ThinkPad T470P NVME SSD

Welcome to the Community

T470p supports both 2.5" SATAIII SSD and 2280 m.2 PCIe 3.0x4 NVME SSD via special adapter FRU 01HY319 (of course, mutually exclusive):

HDD is a SATAIII capable device.

Note, you might add the 2nd SATAIII SSD to the combo wwan/ssd m.2 slot, 2242 in size.

Thank you for your answer

So does it mean that SATA III and NVME SSDs use the same port which my HDD is using right now and NVME SSD will be faster than the SATA III on this port?

Re: ThinkPad T470P NVME SSD

yes and yes. Regarding the bandwidth - the difference between SATA III SSD and NVME SSD is significant enough in synthetic benchmarks like ASSSD or CrystalDisk and not visible in daily work.
