The two M.2 slots each running at 32Gb/s makes the NUC6i7KYK the performance king in many respects, but I should note it's the only unit in the storage tests using an NVMe PCi-E 3.0 4x drive. However, even if you tossed the same SSD into other units, you still couldn't RAID two of them like you can on the NUC6i7KYK.

Both wired and wireless network performance are quite good.
