Hi guys, I just bought an HP laptop with an Intel 660p 512 GB SSD (Serial#: ssdpeknw512g8h), and now I want to check if disk partitions are properly aligned. But so far I couldn't find relevant details like this disk's page or block sizes.

Do you guys have any tips on where to find this information?

Thanks!

What I mean with "properly aligned" is that disk partitions fit to the physical structure of the SSD's NAND flash memory. https://www.thomas-krenn.com/en/wiki/Partition_Alignment or http://codecapsule.com/2014/02/12/coding-for-ssds-part-5-access-patterns-and-system-optimizations, Section 8.1 provide an in-depth explanation of what I am trying to achieve/check.

I also tried to follow a guide at https://rainbow.chard.org/2013/01/30/how-to-align-partitions-for-best-performance-using-parted, but my disk reports optimal_io_size as 0 and the links in this article are dead, unfortunatelly.
