SSD Upgrade

Elitebook x360 1030 g2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Perhaps I am showing my ignorance but... Laptop came with a 128GB SATA 3 M.2 2280 SSD and a  i5 7200u cpu. Did this model come with different motherboards dependent on the SSD &/or CPU installed? I would like to up grade my SSD to a 512GB or 1TB but do not want to buy a SSD faster than the motherboard has the ability to fully utilize. I understand a faster SSD would probably be backward compatible but why pay for speed that will never be utilized.? Will it accept B&M key or just M key m.2 2280 SSD's?

Below is the link to the HP quickspecs for the 1030 G2.


According to HP, it supports either a SATA or NVMe SSD -- see page 8.


Your notebook has the slower SATA3 M.2 SSD installed.


NVMe M.2 SSD's are faster than SATA III M.2 SSD's, but may shorten the time between battery charges.

Below is the link to the Crucial SSD report for your notebook.
