Quote is from Garrett's turbo tech section about ball bearing center section.

There is still the mass of the turbo's rotating parts, the turbine exducer to the compressor's inducer ratio, and the sizing of the hot side to consider among other things.

Turbo Response When driving a vehicle with the cartridge ball bearing turbocharger, you will find exceptionally crisp and strong throttle response. Garrett Ball Bearing turbochargers spool up 15% faster than traditional journal bearings. This produces an improved response that can be converted to quicker 0-60 mph speed. In fact, some professional drivers of Garrett ball-bearing turbocharged engines report that they feel like they are driving a big, normally aspirated engine.
