There’s no way to connect it to a Gen 3 x4 PCIe lanes within the PCH.

I don’t even think your CPU/PCH has support for that, back then it would have been AHCI/PCIe Gen 2 which is much slower then what your M.2 needs, even if you could connect it…

The most speed you can get will be from Samsung Pro SSDs, optimized with Samsung magician in RAID 0, still very fast.

I would also do a RAM upgrade to 16 GB if you haven’t done that already. Even if you decide to use only one SSD and upgrade the RAM this will give you the best performance gain for the money.

I have a mid 2012 MacBook Pro with 4gb ram. I need it upgraded to 16gb but the officials say it takes up to 8gb max. Is that so?, And also I may do upgrade my hdd to that a complex process ? Pls let me know how to install an SSD in place of hdd


I have a mid-2012 MacBook Pro 9,2 and I have installed 16Gb of DDR3 no problem at all. The machine takes 8Gb per slot and you have two slots.


I have a MacBook Pro (MBP) mid 2012 13 inch and about 3 years ago upgraded the memory from 4Gb to 16 Gb (8 Gb X 2 slots) and replaced the HDD to 1Tb SSD and likewise replaced the CD Drive to another 1Tb SSD. It works awesome with speed and capacity!


@gelnjam - The OP's question was if this series could support a PCIe/NVMe glad SSD which it can't as the series only offers a SATA drive interface.

And like you I've boasted my RAM and storage to SSD over the years on my 2012 15" MacBook Pro.


@danj - Same, i have the mid 2012 still great in 2022,
