I love mine in my HP Spectre x360 gem cut. i7-8750h, and 16gb RAM. It feeds an eGPU with a 2080Ti and the upgrade in speed and storage is blazing fast!

If you have the PCI-E lanes to support it... This is hilariously potent. Read/writes out of this world, that only workstations would ever truly find useful, if even that. For games, you'll never worry about load times again.
