Except it's not faster than m.2 and SATA Express. The M.2 SATA Express SSDs are no slower...especially given that the Samsung XP941 seen in the 2013 MBP can be purchased as a 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD. It is a shame that the MBP isn't using the M.2 standard. It would be a little bigger but probably not much. There's no significant advantage for the desktop market for soldered RAM and several downsides. The stacked in-package RAM is different and separate from DRAM.
