Will I need it?
Probably not for the next 3-4 years.

At some point, your processor can't keep up.

There are limits as to how fast things work currently.

Presumably the logic block will be powered down
when you're not using it. That would be nice.

No, I won't be buying a card with a Thunderbolt
controller on it, just for this reason.

Currently, you can buy an adapter housing for an NVMe
that runs at 1GB/sec and has a USB 3.x interface on it.
Which is pretty decent.

Macrium would not run with the 1GB/sec device, at 1GB/sec.
Since Macrium computes a checksum (could be MD5), that
tends to be the rate-limiting step.

But useless benchmarks will benefit from your new hardware.

Which is good in some circles. (Benchmark club, Computer club)

During a benchmark, the deposit of read data in RAM is
ignored, and only the "done" bit is checked. That's how
a benchmark can run that much faster, by not having to
"plow" through the actual data. DMA transfer puts it in
memory. Any process that actually deals with the data,
would rate limit what you're doing.

I'm still using USB(1-3) at home. :/

Unlikely. Unless they make drivers for XP.
With an adaptor that plugs into my USB3 port? Not much of a
"win" there.

PS Maybe on Linux, but my ASUS board will hopefully last
another 5 years or so. (It's just over a year old). USB5 will probably
be the "hype" by then.
