upgrade mSATA to NVMe


I have 2 questions:

Currently i have MacBook Pro 13“ retina late 2012 A1425

My current SSD is Feather P12 with max speed is 450 mbps, I’m looking to upgrade it to NVMe SSD with high speed 1000+ mbps.

  1. I tried to find a converter from NVMe to 7+17 pin SSD but did not find any adapter that supporting my request, they told me since it is SATA the max speed is 500 mbps, in my System Report, showing NVMe but not installed, is it possible to add a NVMe supporting SSD ?
  2. If the above question was answered with no, not possible. Can I upgrade my logic board with newer version like late 2013 retina that supports NVMe? If yes, what else do I need to replace?

Thank you very much, regards

Take the time to review this great write up The Ultimate Guide to Apple’s Proprietary SSDs


hi dan , that did not answer my question actually i understand them but not sure how to hack it


@jordannet - Sadly you can't do what you want to do here.

The hardware review lists a lot of things that your system doesn't have so don't assume that because its listed the system has the ability it just doesn't.


@jordannet Have you solved the problem? I am looking for the same adapter.


@luca.dalessandro89 - There is no problem here! Just an expectation the system has the ability to support something it doesn't.

I've added a graphic to my answer which I think helps clarify things a bit.

I have a few of these in my dead drawer! Between the slow mSATA SSD (3.0 Gb/s or 6.0 Gb/s on the newer drives) they also tends to die when the drive is overly full.

I strongly recommend sticking with one of the Apple custom SSD’s as they will give you better performance (6.0 Gb/s). In any case You are limited to the Apples custom mSATA/AHCI drives as this system does not have the logic to support PCIe/NVMe drives.

As far as upgrading the logic board you are limited to what this system physically can support which is still just another mSATA/AHCI logic board. MacBookPro10,2

Take the time looking for a used newer system like a 2014 or 2015.

This is what the SATA Express & PCIe interface offers. The Red path is all you have in this system.

While Apple’s interface is a bit different physically and they added a few extra lines its basically the same.
