As I said in the topic tittle I would like to know if there is a way to check how many Physical Pcie lanes my M.2 supports (x1,x2,x4), because I'm considering an egpu setup with the beast key M, M.2 connector.

 

Thanks in advance.

Use hwinfo64 software to inspect the PCIe port hosting your NVME SSD. SSD must be installed to easily identify that port and get the it's configured state. An example of using hwinfo64 is shown at:

@nando4, So yeah I did exactly just that but I couldn't find my M.2 connector *note that my nvme 128gb drive is connected and works perfectly* in any of these which got me even more confused, you could check out what popped up in the hwINFO down bellow in the link, btw my laptop is the dell g3 3579 if that would help, and I'm so grateful for your help and the help of this community. waiting for your reply soon, again thanks:)
