Does my X1 Yoga support PCIe NVMe?

2016-07-10, 10:49 AM

I just purchased the X1 Yoga with the I7 6600U, 8GB RAM, Model 20FRA002TH.

How can I find out if it supports PCIe NVMe?

 

Below is the picture of the current SSD that is in it now.

 

Solved! See the solution

Any X1 Yoga should support M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe SSDs.

Thanks for the responses. This M.2 interface is confusing. I guess it's downward compatible.

Based on the spec sheet, some X1 Yoga's maybe installed with SATA 6.0 drives while others with NVMe. And I can install either or.

What threw me off was the notches on the drives. The SATA drives have 2 notches while the NVMe have 1.

This helped me too

You are correct about all of the above.  I will mark your post as the solution.
