I have a laptop HP 15.6" (i7-8550U/8GB/256GB/Radeon 530 4GB) 15-bs113nv model.
Due to low storage and slow speed, I would like to upgrade my old SSD which is:
Sandisk 128gb SSD X600 M.2 2280 SATA III
with this one:
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB NVMe
My only concern is that the motherboard will not accept the NVMe type socket.
Opening the laptop I found that there is an M2X3 type connection.
Will the motherboard accept the new NVMe SSD or should I go with the safe option which is a:
Samsung 860 Evo M.2 500GB SATA III
which has the exact same type of socket (SATA M.2) as the previous one?
Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook's model series.
Chapter 1, page 3 has the supported drive types.
According to the manual, only SATA M.2 SSD's are supported.
The part numbers for the 'value SSD's' also show that they are SATA.
