M.2 NVME vs SSD vs SSHD vs HDD Game Loading Times

by on

M.2 vs SSD vs SSHD vs HDD Game Loading Times. Welcome back guys, I thought it might be a good time to do an update to my M.2 vs SSD game loading times comparison video that was published last year. For this one I’ve decided to add in a SSHD drive and a HDD to the mix to help you get a better understanding of how fast these drives can load some of today’s most popular games.

****SSHD results are from the 4th load****
****Song name: Lost Time (Youtube Library)****

One of the most common question I get from viewers is “is NVME for gaming worth it” and as you can see from the M.2 vs SSD section of the video, it really isn’t worth the money for a few seconds less in loading times. That being said, an M.2 NVME drive will speed up production workflow and window boot times but for gaming there’s no justifiable difference.

I really hope you like this M.2 NVME vs SSD vs SSHD vs HDD game loading time comparison video and find it useful. As always, a thumbs up would be greatly appreciated and if you like my videos please subscribe for more.

    Basically, you paid extra but nothing for SSHD

  9. Stephen Driscoll 4 months ago

    Since these are probably CPU constrained it’d be interesting to see how the results change on your new 9900K. But a lot of work for you I’m sure! It may be that it takes better processors to draw out the NVME / Base SSD distinction.

    on paper ssd is 500 times faster or more than a hdd. in reality you get 2-3 x the speed boost max.

    Jumping from HDD is definitely worth it, i Have 2TB HDD for Apps, Solo games & Movies and I have 2x 480GB SSD's for my operating system & online games. for advice i wouldn't jump from SSD to M.2 though (Just a waste of money to save 1-2 secs load up times but would recommend going to M.2 or SSD from HDD

    Excellent(!!!) presentation. Kudos for the obvious hard work and respect for the polish!. I've watched my share of hardware benchmark videos, but refreshingly, you just cut straight to the meat of the comparison.
    And without speaking a word, somehow you still imparted more useful information than channels that prattle on and on with filler.
    Liked. Subscribed. Both heartily earned!

    Isn't M.2 supposed to be like 5x faster than SATA?

  23. Peter S. 4 months ago

    I think it's really worth paying something that can save your time, cuz you know our lifetime is limited.

  24. Michael 534 4 months ago

    So for a bandwidth rating of 25Gb/sec M.2 only gets about a 2 sec advantage over SATAIII's 6Gb/s thats definitely a head scratcher.

    So, not worth to give 100 to 150$ more, just to load 2-3secs faster into games. Thanks for the video.

  33. zen 4 months ago

    Don't buy those SSHD. They're often very unreliable, and only slightly faster than a standard spinner. Firecuddas are literally the most unreliable drive on the market right now.

  34. Serena Seow 4 months ago

    Thank you for the easy to digest comparison. Really justify my decision to stick with SSD.

  35. mithun weerasingha 4 months ago

    Does this affect only loading

  36. dodid0 4 months ago

    So basically it's about a 15 second delay between SSD and HDD. Don't know if it's worth the upgrade.

    An NVME is definitely worth it. Load your OS onto it and it'll boot up in 2 seconds!

    NVME is to SSD as SSHD is to HDD.

    Pay hundreds of dollars for a large SSD instead of getting up and stretching or doing some pushups or going and grabbing some gamer fuel. Makes sense…..

    your CPU bottlenecks your whole system . It would be better to get AMD since there CPUs go for 3200 MHZ ram. The cost of ryzen 7 3800x(8 cores 16 threads) is about 350$ or you can go for ryzen 9 3900x(12 cores 24 threads) for about 450$. It is just a shame to see an RTX 2080ti uses 6 cores cpu
