Now for why I chose the Samsung 980 Pro over the rest that's available. Over WD's top performer, the Samsung was less costly and was about as good. Though the main reason, from an engineering stand point is if for some odd reason Dell and other manufacturers skimp out on specs, the Samsung SSD should still prove better with limited cooling. Since there is a possibility of PCI-E being 3.0 on any given make and model laptop, using 50% duty cycle on a device made to run faster, will out perform a device that rates half the speed at full duty cycle. Think about that for a bit, most reviewing sites don't tell you that. A second runner up was the WD Black As for speed increase for video editing one could Mirror using Raid 0 or for every day use the second SSD for swap and secondary apps, like monitoring tools and back ground proceasing apps, that are not part of the Windows OS, and primary apps you task from. You may not see reason, but your allowing the system to truly multitask by splitting background caching and apps that launch with os to run on their own data channels. Depending on how much of a multitasker you are, it does make a difference. I believe there will be LDDR4X-4266 ram modules in the near future, it all depends on 3rd party, like Crucial, Kingston and others to fill the void. Then there can be Chinese options as well. Since both AMD and Intel both allow the ram option with their mobile CPU line, it's something beyond niche market. A cheap and effective option to build faster and power efficient laptops and convertables. Until I obtain the RAM, my only option is to add one more module into the system to allow the full potential of the laptop's overall performance. It's not the ram size that counts, it's mostly how the ram was configured. Ram size is only effective with apps that are memory intensive, or video requirements, such as dual displays and games. Most will say but increased ram size and it was faster. Well, most likely you only had one module in the system to begin with. A 2 x 4GB is faster than a 1 x 8, with its overall performance. So that's that... will share more on the laptop configuration as I go. Right now my SSD, will be the first thing at my door.
