A:AnswerNo, there is only one M.2 PCIe 4.0 slot on the Stealth 15M.
It is however possible to replace the supplied SSD with a greater capacity, along with upgrading the RAM but the latter requires a lot of disassembly, so only really recommended for those with the correct tools and knowledge.
A:AnswerI contacted MSI and they said the Gen4 lanes are routed to the RTX 3060, only the models with RTX 20 series have Gen4 to SSD. This model 15M021 has 3060 so SSD is Gen
3 to PCH. The 15M010 has Gen4 SSD support to CPU.
A:AnswerI just got the laptop in today and this was the first thing I tested, since there isn't a clear answer for this anywhere. It worked perfectly with my Oculus Quest 2 using Oculus Link. Plugged into the USB-C 3.2 with DP port and worked great without any hiccups. While the HDMI port doesn't show what it's connected to in the NVIDIA Control Panel for some reason, the thunderbolt ports show as connected to the dGPU and not to iGPU.
A:AnswerFan noise is pretty bad and not graceful. whrrrrRRRRRRRrrrrr (stop) whrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRRrrrrrRRrrrrrrr (stop).
Kind of crazy that people suggest using headphones to ignore it. Maybe for gamers this is okay, but I have a lot of other stuff to do besides gaming.
I have found playing any background audio normally drowns it out, but if you need semi-silence while working/studying, it is very loud.
For me, this is such a shame for a great laptop like this. Have had mine for about a week. Not sure that I am going to be able to go 2-3 years with this ridiculous fan noise.
My previous experience with gaming laptop was the Razer Blade 15. kind of loud (but not like the msi stealth). And the cool thing about the Razer fan is the graceful spin up. If the fans work harder, they gracefully spin up (classy), instead of WHRRRRRRrrrrr stop WHRRRRRR stop whrrrrRRRrrrrrrRRRRrrrr stop
Very bummed about this. Seems like such a simple thing to get right. Otherwise, I enjoy the performance.
