Hi, in technical specs I don't see if the SSD is a SATA or an NVMe type. I understand there are PCIe slots, but didn't get if the SSD is connected to PCIe or not? And if it is an NVMe or just SATA protocol. Thanks !!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Dell's sales site offers both 256 GB and 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSDs for the XPS 8920. So that should answer your question:

Thanks for pointing me on NVMe sales site, but I still don't understand if the SSD sold with the XPS 8920 is a SATA or ar NVMe. Is there any detailed technical documentation with this detail? Thanks for your help.
If we were selling M.2 SSD on the PCIe, we would list it on the sales site. Are PCIe NVME compatible? Yes. We just do not offer that configuration.
The XPS 8920 sells with two M.2 slots. 17 is for the wireless card, 8 is for the SSD =
@raymond91105, read through this thread en.community.dell.com/.../20013527. It seems in order to get the Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NMVe to work the SATA setting in the BIOS has to be set to RAID mode vice ACHI mode..
I have a Samsung 960 Pro installed in my XPS 8920. Take a look at me detailed response in the thread referenced above for the solution that worked for me.
