He doesn't need to waste his time... the result is going to be the same. The utility is only to (possibly) increase performance on "old" drives. Other than that it only decreases size. That's pretty much straight from the article, which came from the github.

Well for me im not convinced that there wont be frame rate loss in more demanding titles but like you said i cant be bothered to test it myself either so lets leave it at that.

any framerate loss from CPU usage is almost certainly less than stuttering/freezing that would occur from trying to read the uncompressed files from a hard drive

with SSDs its about extra space, and most people would probably give up 0-2% performance to gain an extra 10-20% space on their SSDs
