    UX501VW, upgrading internal SSD..


    I'm looking to upgrade my current internal SSD (Samsung MZVPV512HDGL M.2 NVMe PCIE x4) for my Asus UX501VW laptop but I'm not able to understand which would be compatible, the current SSD is a discontinued model so I have looked at Samsung PM981 MZVLB512HAJQ M.2 PCIe 3 x4 and Samsung 970 Pro MZ-V7P512 NVMe PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, I'm fine with any actually, if I only I could know which is compatible or how to know which is compatible.

    The problem, I am skeptical (although I have seen all M.2 NVME PCIe Gen 3 x4, my laptop is PCIe x4 (I believe it to be PCIe Gen 1, unsure as its not mentioned anywhere)) and would like to know if my laptop will support these or any other or if someone could tell me how to know which type is supported, that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks again..
