What external thunderbolt SSD has as low latency as an NVMe drive?

As a developer are you really going to be able to tell the difference?


Disk latency is a limiting factor of compile times for large projects.

What external Thunderbolt SSD isn't literally an NVMe drive? Who is bothering with the expense of a Thunderbolt controller only to put a SATA controller and SSD behind it instead of directly connecting a NVMe SSD? (Unless it's a RAID controller and several SSDs in a TB enclosure.)

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
