Guessing a gen3 m.2 slot won't get those gen4 speeds?

It won't, but I wouldn't feel left out -- very few users will notice any difference between the two.

According to Wikipedia, PCIe 3.0 x4 would be bottlenecked at 4 GB/s minus a small amount of protocol overhead, so it might be a good upgrade regardless, but given the high price, probably not good value if you don't have a specific application that will benefit from the extra speed.

We're waiting for GPU makers and app developers to make use of ultra-high speed NVMe drives.

The new consoles will drive progress on the gaming side, but Windows 10 needs to get better at taking advantages of those speeds as well.

We're headed towards a merging of co-located memory and computation, something that's beyond my current understanding to explain properly.

Developers should start taking steps in that direction by using Gen 4 NVMe drives more like low-level RAM, secondary to system RAM, and less like conventional SATA HDD storage.

I'm no expert, so if you're an engineer in this area, you'll find room for criticism here.

How does this compare to Crucial and WD SN750 Black?

Depends on the Crucial and this is gen4, that WD is gen3.

I think at this point you should only be filling an available slot with 1TB.

At $255 this is slightly above its lowest price on Boxing Day 2019. At least according to partpicker. Not a bad deal during these times actually but price vs performance you can save money with something else.

True. This won't make a noticeable difference when booting windows or loading a game, compared to Gen 3 SSDs.
PCIE SSDs are already insanely fast for the casual-moderate user/gamer.

This would eventually be entry-mid line for performance for pcie4 (eventually, as more drives will be released, revisions etc). This drive is new and doesn't take advantage of the bandwidth fully, the huge heatsink is a sign of what the cost of higher speeds would be.

Endurance is good on this compared to the evo plus for everyone who is looking to jam this into a pci3.

Great price if this is the drive you want. The reduced write performance vs the 1TB model would have me either wait for a deal on that, or save some money with a different PCIe 3 based 500GB model.

I think PC world will just get over console ultra fast storage access by increasing RAM requirement.

32gb will most likely be the new standard and maybe we'll see 64 for some game

Only users of workstation, HPC applications will see a real benefit from Gen 4x4 speeds (if it isn't being bottnecked by a slower component).

For gameing a Gen 3 NVMe SSD will be just as good and significantly cheaper
