(Special) Does using SSD improve gaming performance?

The answer here is complicated, but very briefly… Yes! However, you will not notice any difference in the graphics or framerate. You will notice a big difference in loading times for all games.

If you do not know, sometimes, the difference in loading time (loading) between an SSD and a traditional hard disk (HDD) is quite significant, reaching half or even 1/3 of the original time, depending on the amount of data that the game needs.

So, as you can see in the video above, there is a considerable difference in loading between the 4 discs, especially when we are talking about games that need to load large maps like Tomb Raider, Assassins Creed and GTA 5. (The first two are Samsung NVMe SSDs, while the last two are Seagate HDDs, the speed is arranged this way Pro> Evo> Firecuda> Barracuda).

However, it has to be said, there are no gains in FPS from the use of an SSD in the gaming world. The only big advantage is the loading time, something that we will finally see in the world of consoles, when the PS5 and Xbox Series X arrive on the market.

That said, the reason in bold above, makes many players with low budgets choose to grab extra money from an SSD, betting on a faster graphics card or more powerful processor. Something that I can even support, but only and only if I later spend some more money to put an SSD in your PC. It makes no sense not to want a component like this on our machine.

Yes, there will be no more FPS … Still, despite not influencing the performance in game, when you die, you can immediately return to the action … However, you will not be able to read the tips on the ‘loading’ 🙁 screen
