Replace SSD with models from 2015.

Hi

Can I replace original M.2 SSD with something like SSD 960 EVO NVMe M.2 1TB ?

Will it work at all? And can it support the speed of storage?

original is 500 MB/s write and reed, and on link is 1900 write and 3200 read MB/s.

Thanks

Sadly, no.

Apple uses a different physical interface from the M.2 SSD products you can buy from Samsung. While many of the SSD's Apple uses are made by Samsung they are OEM.

There is a 3rd party that does make a compatible SSD OWC - SSD Upgrades for MacBook Pro with Retina Display 13" & 15" Late 2013, 2014, & 2015. Or, you'll need to find a used unit on eBay which can be a bit of a gamble.

Yes you can with this adapter: http://eshop.sintech.cn/ngff-m2-pcie-ssd...

but only Linux or Windows installer will detect the drive. MacOS doesn't support NVMe for OS booting at the moment.. maybe in future.

So apparently the MacOS High Sierra will support nvme ssd out of the box. :)

Good find!

mmm... I'll need to check it out once I get the needed parts. Remember High Sierra is in Beta so we'll need to wait till the full release to be sure they don't close the door on us ;-}
