Dell Inspiron 15 7559 - Compatibility SSD M.2 PCIe / NVMe

Hello, I have a question about SSD compatibility for my DELL INSPIRON 15 7559 laptop. I want to buy the SSD Samsung 1TB 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 Internal, I want to know if my laptop can work with SSD M.2 PCIe/NVMe (If supported) or only work with SSD M.2 SATA. I have this doubt because I have seen in the community that some say that it is compatible and others say that it is not, also in the specifications of the laptop that is not detailed. Thanks.

See the online Inspiron 15 7559 Specifications PDF. This system will use only M.2 SATA drives - no support for NVMe at all.

I have a Samsung 860 pro in my 7559 since this laptop doesn't support NVMe drives. Honestly, if you want to make the jump to an SSD, go for it, because the performance of your laptop will increase by A LOT, even for a SATA SSD. 

Try searching for M.2 SATA SSD with 1TB capacity, or you could go for a 2.5' SSD as well. The performance benefit will be huge for the price.

Hello,

Specifically, what do you mean that the laptop doesn't support? Don't recognize it? It does not work? 

Thanks.

Correct.  This system will not recognize an NVMe drive.  If you want to use an M.2 drive, SATA is your only option.

Hi,

My doubt comes from this, I found these two images. My CPU is Skylake and according to the block diagram it indicates that the SSD supports what is enclosed in the red rectangle.

While the hardware may potentially have support for NVMe, the system board does not.  Search the forum -- you'll find several instances of people trying NVMe drives, only to find they are not recognized.  This system is SATA only.

Is there anyway we can get it to support M.2 NVME?it has PCIE so why it cant?

You'd need to redesign the system board and build a new one yourself;  the OEM board is SATA only to the M.2 slot.

can you confirm M.2 port is connected to SATA bus or PCIE bus?
