My XPS 8910 SE has a 256 SK Hynix SSD (550 MB/s read speed). I am interested in upgrading to a Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD (3500 MB/s read speed). Does my motherboard support it? Sorry I am a novice.
Also, would upgrading the SSD read speed increase the speed for software program? I use Thinkorswim, a trading program and it slows down when a lot of data is being loaded, and Thinkorswim tech support says it not memory or graphic card related. So I am thinking perhaps it is the SSD speed.
I have a Samsung 960 Pro working fine on my XPS 8910. SSD's shorten the time to load programs but do not speed execution--that depends on the CPU.

The speed increase is not that much according to this article: https://www.extremetech.com/computing/292522-sata-nvme-ssd-upgrade
B keyed units are SATA
M keyed only is PCI-E
the Driver required to SEE the drive is not installed when you change from SATA to PCI-E
Intel RST SATA F6 mass storage drivers from v14.8 up do are required for Optane and NVMe
