My laptop in the late 90s had data transfer speeds at around 10-15 MB/s. With the latest NVMe SSD drives, one can hit 10-15 GB/s. That level of data throughput would have sounded absolutely ludicrous back when my total hard disk size was 2 GB!
This upcoming ASUS motherboard will have space for four NVMe SSDs without the use of add-in cards. That's going to be nirvana for serious gamers, photographers, and video editors.
New CPUs, motherboards, and GPUs are coming in Q4. It should be an excellent time to upgrade for those who were discouraged by the GPU prices of the past two years.
