I guess will have to wait. The progress they made is obviously impressive but would really help if one could understand the overhead vs conventional RDBMS 5X might be OK 20X not so much.

The minimum latency will still be at least ~5ms (worse if nodes are very far apart) and especially bad for contended reads (because of the way they use clocks for serializable operations).

A traditional RDBMS does not have to worry about split brain decisions, but it can hardly do multi-master in the intuitive way.
