Will NVME / Optane improve load times significantly?

Just a thought… with the advent of NVME and, especially, higher low queue depth NAND flash replacements (Intel / Micron 3D XPoint, just to name the most prominent one) - if I get something with higher IOPS for QD1-4, will I see significantly improved load times?

Here are my options, and I’m seriously considering them for samples (not only Halion, but also BFD):


Btw, I will post an FR…

What are you using now?
