External Game Drive?

I've seen Linus use a USB-C game drive to move and play games on, how's the latency and loading and such on one of those? Are they viable alternatives to have instead of an internal ssd?

Does it need to be USB 3.2 or does 3.1 also work? (ik that 3.2 has double lanes...or something like that)

Would i need a special external case for the SSD or is any "cheap" one ok? By that i don't mean $5 Chinese crap, something in the line of $30 or so?

Also SATA m.2 good enough or is it better to have NVMe?

 

Many questions, hopefully not too many, thanks for the help!

Ok, that's good, i've had too high of an expectation then. Thanks!
