    From everything I've seen, it will be a while before games take advantage of Gen 3 NVMe drives (much less gen 4). Unless you are doing something very specific, you probably won't notice a difference between and NVMe and a SATA SSD.

    NVMe drives are physically smaller and can make for a cleaner-looking build though. (depending on where your case has you mount SATA drives)

    Big difference. Although I donít know if you will notice it with purely game if. I donít work with large video files or photoshop files etc.
    Tbh, I don't know because I am not monitoring the performance or anything. I just assume that it should be beneficial since it is not limited by wires.
    I have one NVMe M.2 for programs and one for games, now. Plus the old SATA SSD that I had in my old PC. (And 4TB HDD for storage.)

    I don’t know neither but my guess is that you won’t notice any difference with gaming. For video editing or 3D applications like Cinema4D or 3Dstudio, Maya etc, I would buy the fastest drive I could lay my hands on.
