    He's got two drives setup in RAID-1. Basically doubles throughput, with more heat and higher risk of data loss (if either drive fails you lose all your data).

    A single PCIe drive will get nearly the same throughput while being much cooler. Neat experiment though.

    This kind of RAID speed does very little for you. It is just fancy benchmark numbers but won't make the notebook feel any faster. It is virtually the same with very few cases, where a bit of a difference is noticeable.
    It even hurts latency (not much) and doesn't do too much for random access.

    Yeah I got my RAIDs mixed up.... I think it's called RAID 0 because there's zero redundancy.
