Will NVMe M.2 SSD be supported on Thinkpad x1 Carbon 3rd Generation (2015 model 20BS)?

It's interesting to see that Lenovo updated their storage test and PCI Express test programs for Thinkpad X1 Carbon 3rd gen on 4/11/2016 including changes of "ADD: Storage - NVMe". Hope that is a sign for future NVMe SSD support.

It's been confirmed before that 3Rd gen x1 won't support NVME due to 1. PCie slot is 2.0 and motherboard has no NVME chip/component on the motherboard to handle NVMe function or something and that etc Samsung 950 has PCie 3.0 interface and NVMe function so it will still be a No mostlikely due to motherboards for 3Rd gen x1 is missing these stuff.
