Hello, I have an X1C 3. Gen. (Type 20BS, 20BT) with a Samsung 256 G, M.2, 2.280, PCIe 3x4, STD. Is it possible to replace this SSD by an Samsung 970 Evo Plus and getting all the speed advantages? Or does my notebook limit the speed bc of any certain interface?
Thx in advance for answering!

Hello and welcome,
The short answer is no. It's not a speed problem. The X1C3 supports m.2 SSDs with either SATA or PCIe/AHCI interfaces. It does not support PCIe/NVMe like that 970 Plus and most other current PCIe SSDs.
