Recently picked up an HP Envy 15 4K OLED with RTX2060, it has 2 NVME m.2 slots available, was considering upgrading to a single 2TB Inland SSD (Phison Controller TLC) but then was thinking of maybe getting 2 1TB's and putting them in software RAID0. I do not have anything crucial on this laptop, would this be worth it for the performance increase?

Thanks!

Your bandwidth would double, and because any written data would be stretched across the two SSDs it would take up to twice as long to reach one of your SSDs TBW.
EDIT: Actually, if it is an Intel laptop and the SSDs are very fast the bandwidth won't double, as both PCIe M.2 slots are connected to the CPU through DMI 3.0, which has about the same bandwidth as four PCIe 3.0 lanes.
