11th Gen Intel based ThinkPads - PCIe 4.0 for storage?

2021-01-11, 22:46 PM

Does anyone know if the new 11th Gen Intel based ThinkPads support PCIe 4.0 storage? I want to drop in a Samsung 980 if I can to get best performance.

Solved! See the solution

My X1 Nano, with a Gen11 non-vPro i7, is PCIe 3.0 x4 per https://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_X1_Nano_Gen_1

 

Don't know about the new Carbon or Yoga.

Hmm, I wonder if they provide a 3.0 drive but the system board would support 4.0? I think the chipset supports it. Thanks for the info.

I think you'll be interested in the pdf linked at the bottom of the first post here (and in the Carbon9 thread):

Great, thanks for point that out. It will be interesting to see what drive ships in these units. Lenovo doesn't usually go to far down on storage recently but usually not top end.
