Can a PCI-express SSD be installed on the i7-6700HQ M.2 slot

Hi everyone -

 

I'm planning to install an PCIe 4x in the M.2 slot of the laptop motherboard. How can I check if 970 evo is compatible with my motherboard? I found these specifications for Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ Processor :

PCI Express Revision: 3,0

PCI Express Configurations: Up to 1x16, 2x8, 1x8+2x4

Max # of PCI Express Lanes: 16

 

Any help would be very appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Again, you need to contact your laptop manufacturer and ask them what THEIR LAPTOP supports.

Hi Doc, that's the first thing I did but the support team still didn't reply. I'm just trying to see if anyone if this forum have more information about it.

Only your laptop manufacturer knows what their laptop supports.
