NVME Compatibility

Some customers have reported compatibility issues with certain brands/models of NVME drives with Raspberry Pi 5.

No 'official' compatibility list is maintained by 52Pi or Raspberry Pi (yet), so we suggest following the same compatibility list on the Pimoroni NVME Base page as a starting point until something official is shared.


  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 5
  • NVMe Capability: Supports NVMe (M-key) drives in M.2 format sizes 2230 and 2242
  • PCIe Support: PCIe x1 interface in both Gen 2 and Gen 3 standards
  • Hollow design: Hollow design provides excellent ventilation for cooling
  • Gold-plated PCB: Gold-plated PCBs offer superior electrical performance
