SSD vs NVME for 3D Modeling

Hello, I am considering an 1TB NVME for 3D Modeling.

I want to:

1) Speed up Scene opening times.

2) Speed up random access when opening a folder of assets (having the assets show up immediately instead of the folder being blank for a few seconds then everything appearing in the folder--inside of the Modeling Software).

3) Speed up Asset importing.

 

Like SSD vs NVME for game loading where you only gain 0-5s loading time advantage. I do not think that there will be any significant loading advantages in this case. By significant I mean anywhere 25% or faster (ex: if a scene takes 4mins to load an SSD; it should take 3 mins on an NVME). This will be used in a laptop to replace the stock 256GB SSD (non-NVME).

 

If someone has experience or even a side by side video of this scenario. I would like to know the answer.

for random writes, nvme is really much better. for everything else, not much different for real world use cases.

Can you explain a little bit more. My knowledge in this area isn't great.

NVMe helps with large files, for small ones it's no faster than a normal SSD. In fact, my 8600K rig actually boots faster off a SATA 860 Evo than my R7 2700X rig off a WD Black NVMe M.2 drive.
