Hi:

 

Th Samsung 980 Pro is a PCIe Gen 4 SSD and your notebook's M.2 slot is only PCIe Gen 3.

 

The Samsung 980 Pro will work but only at a much slower speed.

 

Also be advised that your notebook's M.2 slot is PCIe Gen 3 x 2, not x4, so even a Gen 3 NVMe SSD is only going to run at about half of its advertised read/write speeds.

Hi 

Kindly let me know which one is best for me for high speed?

HP Recommended

I would go with the plain Samsung 980 or the Western Digital Blue SN570.

Hi 

Thank you

What will the read and write speed if you I use one of these suggested?

HP Recommended

You're very welcome.

 

I'm going to say about half of what either drive advertises.

 

For example, the Samsung 980 has a maximum sequential read/write speed of 3,500/3,000 MBPS, so the best you will get out of it would be approximately 1,750 read/1,500 write.

 

That is still almost 3x faster than any SATA SSD would provide.
