1) NVME support has been around for years on PC and It is fairly easy to mod it into older motherboard firmware(I've done so on my haswell machine, for example) and use a PCI-E to NVME adapter.
2) Any PC so old that it can't even be modded to support NVME is old enough that the CPU is likely the biggest bottleneck for the latest 2020 games.
3) It will probably take a few years for game devs to actually require faster than SATA SSDs for good performance since the PS4 and Xbox one have a huge install base and will likely still be relevant for some time.
Long story short, if 2022 comes around and you are still rocking a sandy bridge quad core, the lack of NVME is the least of your problems as a gamer.
"We should make it clear that NVIDIA is a good company, and we respect their attempted transition into being a smartphone company." - Roy Taylor, AMD
