First, if you don’t know if your Windows 10 is powered by a blazing fast SSD drive, run the following cmdlet in the PowerShell window.
If you don’t see any SSD in the output, time to upgrade.
Now that you know you have the fast SSD powering your Windows, let’s dig a bit deeper to know which type of SSDs you are using.
Right-click the Start menu and open Device Manager. Expand the Disk drives section, right-click the disk listed there and choose Properties.
In the Details tab, select Hardware Ids from the Property tab, and see what you find in the Value box below.
If you see the word NVMe there, you are using the fastest type of SSD drive on the market. If not, you are still using a respectfully fast type of SSD in SATA.
If digging through the device manager is a bit intimidating, here is a free portal tool called SSD-Z that provides the answer right in the Interface box.
