    Good time to buy a Gen 4 NVME drive?

    Hi all,

    I'm in the process of moving back to AMD after many years! (last AMD cpu was a 3200xp what an epic clocker that was)

    I have my MOBO and CPU picked out but cant decide whether to invest in a fancy gen4 nvme drive now or wait to see what drive arrive next?

    What has me thinking is the performance of the drives in the next consoles will appear in the PC shortly?

    What would you do?

    Thanks

    If you need it now, just buy it. You're not likely to see real world performance increases over what you can get now for a while to come, so anything more is just e-peen.
