In Winter '20 release, Einstein Analytics introduces Salesforce Direct, read this release notes for complete info of Salesforce Direct.

However, Salesforce Direct offers you to get data more than just Salesforce objects, but data in Einstein Analytics too, one of them is EdgeMart, please not to confuse with the edgemart node in Dataflow.
