has this changed with qbittorrent version 4? Blocks are held in cache to reduce number of writes to disk?

Also wondering if there is any new information on this, for cache and harddrive usage?

Today was released qbt 4.1.0
and it has this: FEATURE: Add "Coalesce reads & writes" checkbox in advanced options (Chocobo1)
I see it is enabled by default in Options / Advanced
