If building a PC from scratch with a large budget, is GPUDirect Storage something that should be considered when parting out the system?
If so, will PCIe Gen 4 NVMe see worthwhile performance bumps (or even possibly being required) compared to Gen 3 NVMe or even SATA SSD?
I understand that we may just not have enough information to say right now. I'm not sure if GPUDirect Storage is even available, and I'm fairly certain no games are utilizing it right now. But even if there isn't enough information, do you think it'd be worth getting PCIe Gen 4 now, in a not so literal sense, to future proof a pc when building from scratch.
I guess my main concern is that someday PCIe gen 3 will not be fast enough for GPUDirect Storage. I know it will take some time for games to be developed with GPUDirect Storage in mind, but seeing as it's a selling point of PS5 and Xbox Series X, I feel like it will doubtlessly gain relevance in the foreseeable future. With that said, PCIe Gen 4 is much more price prohibitive than Gen 3, and it's hard to tell right now if it's justifiable for a build from the ground up.
