With this new SSD drive out and the IOPs it has over anything else, what performance benefits would it have for Lightroom and Photoshop CC?

I'm currently building a PC and the HDD is what I want to maximize my money on for performance. Currently have an i5 8600k with an MSI Z370 GAMING PLUS ATX board. From a durability standpoint, the Intel Optane is superior. Storage per $ is very high though. Wondering if I should just stick to the Samsung EVO drives. Money always matters but can the Optane be justified for Lightroom use?

Thanks,
Mike

If you see where your benchmark scores show that the Optane shines is small file size read: in other categories, NVM SSDs can do well with the M.2 architecture. Lightroom and PS are doing a lot of mixed tasks, so I would think the M.2 Samsung Evo is just as capable and is a better value. At the end of the review, the authors say that while the 900p hasn't reached DRAM like speeds, Intel is advertising it as being extremely durable. Seems like it is being marketed for business workstation type applications.

Thats kind of what I thought looking at all the bench mark test results. I had mixed feelings on overall need for the Optane vs EVO. I can also get more $ per gig with EVO as well. Shouldn't see a need to go the Optane route just yet. Maybe an upgrade later on.

Looks like a waste of money for PCs. Database servers and such might benefit from it.
