HP Pavilion Gaming - 15-ec0029ax

Wanted to upgrade to a 500gb or 1TB ssd, confused between PCIe gen 3 or gen 4 as the latter provides better speeds. Is PCIe gen 4 supported ?

Your notebook's M.2 slot is PCIe Gen 3.0.

 

A PCIe Gen 4.0 SSD will work, but it will not run at its maximum advertised read/write speeds.

 

This chart shows the maximum transfer speeds from the various PCIe slot generations.
