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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
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.
