Why is input latency higher with games on secondary SSD?

Recommended Posts

This is quite strange. First of all games shouldn't stutter due to being run on a primary vs. secondary SSD. Also running games from the secondary SSD should not lead to a noticable increase in input lag.

 

Can you post your full specs and the games you are running ?

You sure it's not placebo? the game is stored in RAM so the secondary SSD only matters when you're loading into a different area in the game.

Sure. I'm pretty sure my 860 evo (with windows) is faulty, as I have not stuttering on the other drive.

 

When you say noticable, do you mena there will be some, even a little.

Well, I can't rule out that there will be some difference. But in any case it should never be noticeable. And there shouldn't be any difference outside loading times if you have enough RAM.

If you want to prove that, run CrystalDiskMark. if you don't get numbers similar to this:

You can start suspecting the SSD.

 

EDIT: The values are representative of the 1TB model. Models with less capacity may have somewhat worse performance

Also to clarify that's CrystalDiskMark 3, so the order/names of the 4 benchmarks are different in Version 6.
