    Bootability means that the firmware/boot rom needs to support it. HS does seem to update firmware for APFS support but no mention of NVMe.

    Subbed, really interested to see if we can now start utilizing NVMe drives to their full potential and not have to rely on AHCI M.2 SSD's to boot from

    What would be the upside to Apple for introducing bootable NVMe on cMPs?

    Such a gesture would certainly be in line with their recent 'pro-centric' rhetoric, though I agree they don't have much incentive to actually improve the cMPs in any way. I could only see it happening if they had to do a bunch of work to get APFS booting on NVMe, and adding cMP boot support wasn't that much additional work.
