X1 Carbon v3- upgrade SSD PCIe NVMe

2018-04-01, 0:05 AM

 

Hello

I am fairly inexperienced at this and I appreciate the help.

I am trying to upgrade my stock SSD, and want to know If I can  use of the new PCIe NVMe SSD drives such as the Samsung one below. 

What is the maximum capacity I can use? I read on a forum 256 is the max, is that true?

Thanks in advance!

Solved! See the solution

Good day and welcome to the community.

To the best of my knowledge, the Carbon 3 only supports AHCI PCIe or SATA SSDs. NVMe PCIe support is in later Carbon generations.


Hope this helps a bit.
Regards.
