Thank you again!!!
Check out my new M.2 FAQ: en.community.dell.com/.../20015317
I will work on the 3050/5050/7050 and get back when I know more.
Thank you for your feedback.
Thank you for your question and feedback. I'll find out and post back.
I just found this document. www.dell.com/.../optane-enabled-system-may-not-boot-when-a-hard-drive-or-optane-device-fails
Does that help you out? I'm still working on the lanes information. My firm assumption for now is that the ports are 4X on those models.
Hi Justin C,
Which kind of M.2 SSD supported by Precision 7510?
NGFF or NVMe?
Thank you in advance.
Dell 5480 "H" and Dell 7480 "U" are both PCIE 3.0.
The 7510 supports 2280 M.2 SATA and 2280 M.2 PCIE.
Mr Justin C, Dell Tech Support, Re your post of 19 Sept 2016 upgrades.
Getting ready upgrade my XPS L702X with Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5 SATA III Internal SSD. Apppreciate any new guidelines you might advise since 2016. Many Thanks
I recently bought a Dell 5480 with Dell PCIe NVMe drive 256gb. Thank you for your suggestion.
I would appreciate if you can tell me if I have a x4 lanes or x2 lanes as I am planning for an upgrade to a bigger hard drive. My processor is i7 7820HQ 2.9GHz.
Do you think it will support x4 lanes?
I've updated the original post to include data on Optiplex 3050, 5050 and 7050 mini towers.
I'm still working on the answer to the caching support.
Dell has many models of drives shipped with the 7510, including: Sandisk, Hynix, Samsung SM871 and Samsung SM961
Inspiron 7378 supports only M.2 SATA drives
5480 with H processor supports 4X ( Your system supports 4X )
