If I'm not mistaken, we should see the first one in a couple of weeks: Forspoken
I'm planning on buying it, and half of my reason why is just to try DirectStorage (the other half of my reason is that it looks fun.)
100% wrong. Maybe put a spinny drive back into your system to remind yourself how much of an effect disk I/O has on a system? Heck, even a proper SSD is slow as molasses now. Let's talk about VM restore time, shall we? When I can pause and restore a 16GB (in-memory) VM in just 2 or 3 seconds, that's amazing. That's time saved. I see, and appreciate, the difference in speed every day.
