    Pretty fast, but most people probably won't benefit from it (as with current NVMe vs SATA SSDs).

    Why did they need pcie 4 to make this? cuz x4 was limited at 3.9gb on pcie 3?

    They need to specify this will be only for AMD desktops :D

    Why do you ask if you then answer your own question? ;)

    PCIe 4.0 was available on Epyc and POWER9 first (and there are POWER9 desktops).

    All I want to know is 4k random read@ QD=1

    If I want higher seq read/write, there is raid-0 ;)

    Fantastic! And what does it mean in general use like Win or game load times? Nothing, as there is zero difference between a 400-500 MB/s SATA SSD and a 2500-3000 MB/s NVMe (PCI-E or m.2) SSDs.

    same goes with 10 12 16 32 core cpus .... but they exist because gaming is not the only use of a pc !
    i would also argue that 6 core is the sweet spot but 8 are nice to have!

    Fast, will be fun when applications can take full effect of these both software in general and also gaming and improvements from less startup times and in-game loading to reducing pop-in and helping streaming in general though I'm thinking that these faster drivers can already help a bit by sheer performance and other advantages but it could go faster. :D (Always faster!)

    Then throw these into a raid array like the above image and that would be a fun little boost.

    EDIT: Wonder how fast and effective things could get, less bottlenecking and throttling from interfaces and connectivity between CPU, RAM, GPU and SSD / IO overall and yeah that would be pretty nice but it's coming together little by little as newer standards and hardware comes out on the market bit by bit.
    (And whatever work is needed software side, OS itself, applications and that sort of thing to fully leverage this.)

    But outside of gaming there's probably also plenty of uses for a faster drive and other bottleneck removals as data is sent here and there, maybe even more so. :)

    Well probably not so maybe really and more like definitively.
    (Getting those bottlenecks down is going to see some good gains after all.)
