wow TLC even?

5.0 drives skipping mlc and slc entirely.

also unless ppl step up game these fast specs wont matter if the rest of your pc cant use all of the prior protocol.

Given the impact of jumping to PCI-e 4.0 drives, I fully expect this PCI-e 5.0 generation to shave another full 0.21 seconds from WIndows boot times! :)
In a couple years, SSD performance will be one of the bottlenecks for gaming performance, just like the GPU and CPU are. See the Unreal demo that loads everything from disk in real time, and the current gen consoles that require a fast SSD.
