XPS 8930 Is there a limit on the capacity/size for the M.2 SSD?

Is there a size limit on the M.2 SSD?  Can I use any size ssd (i.e., 256, 512, 1TB, 2TB etc)?

Size limit for most SSD has to do with how many dollars are in your wallet.

@jdrumsr According to the XPS 8930 Setup and Specifications the limit for PCIe/NVMe SSD is up to 1TB, but according to this post that may be an error, and that Dell actually sells the XPS 8930 with a 2TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD.


Hi, @Vic384 ,


Maybe the apparent disparity is simply down to the fact that Dell usually do NOT update their Documentation following initial Launch of a Product Range.


Hence the Specifications Document would ONLY include the Information that had been Validated at the time of initial Release - however, it is always possible that Dell have subsequently Validated other options/specs??
