Im looking to upgrade it with a Kingston KC3000 PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD and would like to know if the laptop supports PCIe Gen4 beforehand, since if it doesn’t, then it would just run at half the speed.

Hi:

 

Your notebook's M.2 slot supports PCIe Gen 3 NVMe SSD's.

 

A PCIe Gen 4 SSD will not run at its maximum advertised read/write speeds.

 

Since notebook processors are integral parts of the motherboard, you can normally look up the PCIe connectivity speed on the AMD or Intel websites for the model processor your notebook comes with.

 

As you can see from the AMD Ryzen™ 7 5800H processor specs at the link below, the PCIe Generation is 3.0.
