Of course, no comparison to using a NVMe drive with ext4, but it might give you a sufficient boost in order to do your compilation/development stuff on eMMC. Have a look at these benchmarks:


However, depending on the actual OS used, it must be noted that getting it installed using f2fs might not be straight-forward.

That makes a lot of sense! I use Manjaro for PBP and now I am wondering why it doesn't default to f2fs. I don't remember being given a choice by the installer either! I know Arch supports f2fs, so it should be possible on Manjaro as well.

I used https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fstransform-git/ for converting few sdcards from ext4 to f2fs without data loss.
I guess you can boot from sd and launch it on your manjaro partitions (make a backup before).
