    Interesting, thanks for sharing.
    I did a similar analysis on my PC, after two weeks of testing and came to similar conclusions: much faster in generating previews and exporting, not much difference in importing.
    But by far the biggest benefit for me is that there are no more memory leaks: no decay of performances after long sessions (several days).
    Culling images is very fast, even huge files (4k video and 8k timelapses), as long as the folder does not exceed 100GB

    Another thing I have noticed is that now LR uses 100% of CPU, especially when exporting.
    Before the upgrade it was never going to more than 50% in my PC.
    That might explain in part the gain in speed
