Three M.2-compatible notebooks make it to our M.2 SSD list – Acer Predator 17, Predator 15 and Acer Swift 7

laptop-m2-ngff-ssd-compatibility-listWe’ve just added three new notebooks to our M.2 SSD compatibility list and all of them feature the M.2 SSD slot. Also, all three of them are Acer-branded and brand new. The refreshed Predator lineup and the upcoming ultra-thin Swift 7. But there’s a catch.

Let’s begin with the unusual configuration of the Swift 7. A fast disassembly revealed that the ultrabook features a small 2230 SSD and not the usual 2280. It comes with a Kingston drive, which is probably an SATA-enabled drive using the AHCI controller, so no NVMe support, unfortunately.

The other two notebooks are the new Predator 15 and 17. However, there’s no change in the drive setup – they both offer the 2280 and 22110 SSDs like their predecessors. There’s a big drawback in this setup because the 22110 drive is not commonly found on the market and most of the time it’s used in Apple’s MacBooks.
