SATA/NVME Compatibility

I have recently purchased NUC10i7FNH which came pre-configured from re-seller with M.2 SATA3 (2280), can i replace it with NVME (PCIe3x4) since the form factor of the interface on motherboard looks it would "physically" fit NVME, possible?

You most-definitely can do so. I myself have used a number of different M.2 2280 NVMe SSDs in this NUC model without issue. This includes:

  • ADATA/XPG SX8100NP, SX8200NP, SX8200PNP (Pro) and GAMMIX S7
  • Intel 600p, 660p and 760p Series
  • Toshiba/OCZ RD400.

You can see more examples in the Product Compatibility charts here: https://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails?EPMID=188811 (look under 'M.2 PCIe'.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for your response!

 

Did you get read/write speed of NVME? or it operated at speed of SATA?

Heck no, performance is far above SATA speeds. I currently have a 240GB ADATA/XPG SX8200NP installed in my FN. It's spec says possible sequential R/W performance is 3200/1100. Here's what I'm actually getting:

I updated my previous response to include this (older) model drive in the list (I misread it when I checked yesterday).
