Hi guys,

But its not enough this information in Dell site, because in my Inspiron 5570 you can see 4 pin in the connector, as the picture below.

All M.2 ssd I see it's 5 pin, it's work in this notebook? Thanks.

The system will work with any standard, M.2 2280 drive - either SATA or NVMe.

The specs posted above clearly mention an NVMe SSD, so yes.

Can you check if its read/write velocity exceeds that for SATA III ? This matter depends on socket type, ist wiring, and the bios.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Dell Instiron 5570 M.2 Slot type

Here's my slightly off topic question:

Can I replace the current 1tb SATA3 drive in my 5570 with my existing Samsung EVO SATA3 SSD drive?  For clarity, this is not an M.2 drive, but a SATA3 SSD drive.

Thank you.
