    "5000MB/s read/write speeds in low temperatures" so what will it be at 'normal' temperatures then...

    Thus me saying actively cooled chipset. And perhaps an actively cooled m.2 ssd

    you'll need that bandwidth soon for all the voice and webcam data MS and its Alexa Amazon build-in will be storing during use for streaming back to their servers once you go online.

    You can get tiny blowers for M.2 SSDs, with 25mm fans. It'd be cute to have a 1/4 scale version of one of their windforce heatsinks bundled with this

    What do people think to these? I'm now loading games at 4K and they can take quite a while with large textures. Would this kind of thing make any difference over the half decent SATA drives or have the vast majority of the gains over HDD been had?

    They could do an AIO! Not sure what would be funnier, a 120mm AIO just for the m.2 drive, or an itty 60mm AIO

    For office and programming work .. would that make any real difference?

    Re: Gigabyte teases "World's first PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD" - 5GB/s speeds

    slow progress I suppose in the end. The 24" Samsung OLED panel I have came with a test sheet showing 97% DCI-3 (iirc). I am planning to change my desk maybe and plug it in which will entail using my Vega 56 again. It does 144hz Freesync 1 oh 2.
    I wonder how those screens look ... I bet Gigabyte did the backlighting well

    Every benchmark on game loading I've ever seen says the same thing: SATA SSD over HDD is a large and consistent benefit. NVMe over SATA is within margin of error. This is unlikely to make a measurable difference over current NVMe drives outside of synthetic benchmarks.

    Hang on, you have a 24" OLED that is 144hz, freesync and good colour coverage.. that sounds like the monitor I've been waiting for. What's the model?

    Like edmundhonda has said, the gains will likely be minimal.

    The reason is in PCs, there are literally thousands of configurations developers(software) have to aim for, and often for the lowest common denominator. This the tradeoff you get for flexibility in PCs.

    Of course games still benefit, but nowhere near as much as you think because of that. HDDs have existed for several decades now. Reports are saying it'll take until 2021 for SSDs to outsell HDDs. That means more than 50% of the purchases are HDDs, and user base is likely far, far greater for HDDs than SSDs.

    PS5 using SSDs is said to decrease load times greatly compared to PS4 with HDDs. More than 10x in fact. This difference is way bigger than HDDs to latest NVMe SSDs. That's because Playstation is a specialized gaming computer, and its a platform that's unchanging and is available in a single hardware spec. That's a great boon for developers.

    PS5 radically changes the filesystem, and the way SSD works. That kind of change in PCs take 10-15 years.
