Additional SSD Memory slot on 2020 Omen 15

HP Recommended
Omen 15-EK0013DX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi just bought a Omen 15 with 512 GB + 32 GB Optane SSD built in.  Im trying to find out if there is a second SSD slot in the computer and if anyone has any recommendations if so for a 1 TB SSD to add to the computer.  Thanks!

It has second M.2 NVMe SSD slot which is for RAID 0 configuration. The specs of your machine is

I has slot 2 which is occupied by the second 512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD (the first one is 512 GB Intel® SSD) and because it is configured as RAID 0 therefore you only see 512GB.

 

In theory, you can disable RAID 0 and use the second drive for storage (you can upgrade to 1TB or 2TB at a later date). But normally disable RAID 0 may cause loosing data therefore you can try at your own risk

Banhien-

 

The documentation for this model suggest that you're correct that both m.2 slots have devices, but if it was RAID 0 the effective space would be 1TB instead of 512 due to striping- I believe you meant RAID 1, which would make sense as it would make the laptop fault redundant by default.

It's odd to me that this isn't explicitly obvious between product marketing or even the end user experience- until I decided to google if I could expand my laptops storage I was unaware there was anything but the 512 intel optane m.2 module. I purchased the laptop from bestbuy and even looking into the specs I didn't realize there was 2 drives.
