ixChariot Network Throughput:
The single M.2 SSD is one of the fastest we have tested in a notebook, similar to a Samsung 960 Pro, and only bested by other drives in RAID 0. Networking performance is stellar, and part of that is thanks for the Killer Wireless AC 1535, which is one of the better wireless cards on the market.
The battery tests reveal one of the weaknesses of the notebook. When you go thin you typically also lose space for a larger battery, and that is what has happened here. The hardware is powerful, the display is 4K, and they will drain the battery in a few hours if you are gaming.
