Hello,

 

I have an old laptop Acer Aspire V5-571PG and I want to upgrade it to M.2 because its faster.

But my laptop doesn't have an M.2 slot. Please let me know if this is possible.

I will use a 2.5in NVMe/PCI-E SSD to M.2 NGFF PCIe x4 SSD Adapter.

Like the below image;

Will it work? I will use it as my primary storage and where the OS will be.

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

It could work but not with speed benefice you want!

 

The main reason M2 NVMe are faster its because they connect directly to the PCIe interface so they have more bandwidth, etc. in your case the adapter speed is always limited by the SATA interface used to connect to the computer.

Oh, is that so? Then no need to upgrade to M2.

I'll just upgrade my RAM instead. 

 

Thanks mate.
