    Both are PCI-e. The difference is that 2014 is connected via PCIe x2 (5.0GT/s) and 2015 model x4 bus (8.0GT/s)

    2015 is about 50% faster in sequential transfers which looks great in benchmarks, but the practical difference is negligible as the 2014 was super fast already.

    Tks for the heads-up, much appreciated,
    Starting to look like the extra few hundred dollars will be worth it as the Mac will be used for some PS editing
    when on the road,
