m.2 slots in 17t-cb100

What are the m.2 slots -- 2.0 or 3.0? Are they both the same or is one slower than the other?

You can use PCIe 3.0 drive. 3.0 is newer than 2.0 and normally faster.

Thank you for your reply.

 

What I am trying to find out is what the two slots on my motherboard support; 2.0 or 3.0? And are they both the same? If not, which is which.

 

I had a Samsung 970 Evo plus installed, and it was slower than the original drive. The read/write was about half the rating of the drive, and the benchmark went way down from the original drive. I believe the tech who installed it put it in the second slot instead of where the original M.2 drive was installed. I am thinking that maybe the slot he put it in does not support 3.0 but the one that had the original drive in it does, and all I have to do is put the new drive in the other slot to get performance out of it.
