First-gen into new stuff is rarely worth bothering with. We're on 2nd-gen with DDR5 though and once you get into high-performance DDR4 (3600-10) vs similarly priced DDR5 (6400-28), DDR5 is usually ahead. First-gen 5.0x4 SSDs still use mostly the same NAND chips as 4.0x4 SSDs and overall drive architecture, so no miracle will be happening there. You'll have to wait for 2nd or 3rd-gen 5.0x4 SSDs for power draw to get reeled in and NAND performance to catch up.Look at DDR5. It's crap. Look at pcie5 NVME drives. More crap.
