Oh, I should have clarified. It improves performance under heavy
load. Under normal load, mounting without sync is fine. What I tend
to do is mount with "remount,rw,sync" when heavy load is starting.
Then my system goes slowly, but latency is good. Then, when it's all
done (say a big compile, or job, or whatever), I remount without sync

I'm thinking of writing a script that monitors performance, and
remounts as needed, lol. WHAT A HACK. hehe.
