Acer A515-51-589E m.2 PCIe or SATA

My A515-51-589E has a 2280 slot with M-Key. Would it support PCIe or only SATA? I did not find any options in the BIOS.
HWiNFO shows only 2 PCI Express x1 which are used for CardReader and Ethernet + WLAN.
Would anyone have any thoughts how I can find out? Much appreciated.
Thanks,
Johannes

  9. Just wanted to share an update: I contacted Acer Support. The privided me with the information that the M.2 port is connected with PCIe 3.0 x4.

    Knowing that the port is active I‘ve ordered an SATA M.2 drive, as I do not need the drive for large file transfers and don‘t expect a large benefit from PCIe for booting and program start performance.

    Will keep you updated, if it works.

    Thanks

  10. Hi Johannes,

    Can you update us?
    Is this real PCIe 3.0 x4 and does it also support SATA M.2 ?

    Thank you
