    I have a late 2021 razer base RZ09-0410AE22 with a rtx 3060. Im wanting to upgrade to a 2TB storage. So i ordered a 970 evo plus. Gen 3 x 4 pcie card. Upon downloading samsung magician, I notice my current card is a gen 4 and my Interface is ALSO a gen 4 x 4. WTF gives razer? I find conflicting info on your website as well. see the links, first is the link to MY laptop and you can clearly see the specified storage slot types, which is what I based my order on..

    This link is another conflicting info.

    I had to order my 2 TB 970 due to it not being in stock anywhere. Now Im gonna just try and slide to best buy and get the 2 TB 980 pro and see if it works. DO note, on samsung magician benchmark test I tested at read & write @ 6.2 Gb/s | 4.4 GB/s respectively which is well above what any pcie gen 3 can do correct? Further supporting that I do indeed have a Gen 4 x 4 pcie slot in my most basic of base models 2021 razer... I thought gen 3 pcie max speed was around 3GB/s read...At this point I just want someone to chew on this and give me their thoughts? I can only guess that when they phased in their late 2021 PCs they forgot to update their product link...If i were doing high res editing or something I think Id be very disappointed swapping my gen 4 to a gen 3. If this wasnt a new computer I wouldnt even care but Ill likely end up filling both SSD slots with 4TB so Im gonna try and get the faster storage and see if it works. If it does Ill just send the 970 evo plus back
