E7270 : Can E7270 use Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD 2TB?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for your answer @Hervé

 

Because there are some people who doubt it. And there are also argue that the Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 NVMe has the PCIE3.0x4 protocol while the E7270 only supports the PCIE3.0x2 protocol. That's what makes a lot of people doubt because SSD sellers also don't want to open their purchase box just to try.

 

In addition, the problem is capacity limitation. In some cases, laptops that are installed with a 2TB SSD capacity can only be read a 1TB by motherboard.

 

And the SSD seller in my place no one has ever tried it on a Dell Latitude E7270.

 

So, Samsung 970 Evo is really compatible with E7270 right? If so, I'm determined and confident to buy and install it.

What you mentioned above was obviously the number PCIe channels/lanes available on the M.2 NVME slot. I've not checked the E7270 though I'd be surprised if Dell had fitted a 2 x lanes B+M M.2 slot for SSDs but check it out.

 

All I can say is that the same was said about the 7480 and 7490 and it turned out to be false. Those do have a 4 x lanes B+M M.2 slot for SSDs and I was able to verify that a Samsung 960 EVO ran perfectly at full speed.

You can also look at sites such as Crucial and/or others where you'll find PCIe x4 NMVE SSD being offered for the E7270. Eg:
