M.2 SSD

HP Recommended
hp 580-1xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The motherboard I have shows an m.2 slot and I wanted to upgrade my PC with an NVMe SSD to boot windows. I’m worried that this PCIE slot shares lanes with my GPU and I do not want to hinder performance in any way.  I’m Hoping to upgrade to the crucial p1 NVMe m.2 SSD or the crucial mx500 SATA SSD to play it safe.

*Ryzen 7 1700 16Gb 2400 ddr4 1TB HHD (Basswood mb I believe n with 1 x16 PCIE 1 x1 PCIE 1 m.2 socket)

What is your hp 580-1xx  ? Asuming your machine has same motherboard with the following machine

 

       HP Pavilion Power 580-137c

         

which shows M.2 slot on the right hand side

 

The M.2 SSD socket is  the M.2 socket 3, key M which is for NVMe SSD. You can use

   Or similar from reputable vendors.

I notice on a similar thread that questioned the speed of the m.2 slot on this board is limited to PCIE 2 only.

” 

You may have a chipset limitation which cannot be mitigated.

 

I would say the chipset in your motherboard is limited to PCIe 2.0. The chipset is controlling data transfer rates to the M.2 socket on your motherboard. “

Does this mean that my m.2 SSD would be sharing lanes of data with my 16x PCIE slot?
