Yeah, it would help a lot if someone knowledgeable could explain to us in layman's terms what Carmack said.
He disagreed with one part of the bottleneck, specifically the buffered file access as it can be avoided with unbuffered file access, circumventing the kernel overhead. Outside of that, he agreed with the bottlenecks on PC causing it to be unable to compete with PS5 in file IO department.
