NVME vs SSD for Gaming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I need a 1TB Drive for games as me 2 TB HDD is full .

 

NVME 1 TB going for $130 and SSDs going for $120.  And I’m talking about the Crucial brand.  NVME read/write 2000/1700 MB/sec vs SSD read/write 540/500 MB/sec.  

 

Well I benefit from an NVME drive or is just a waste?

NVMe makes no difference in gaming (and daily usage), you're better off saving money and buying a regular 2.5"/M.2 SATA SSD instead.

So I should save $10 and get an SSD but I don’t get it what’s the point of NVME then?

If it's a 10$ difference then you should definitely get it

The cheap Crucial NVMe drives don’t perform well anyway. Read the reviews on them. Some people had issues with reliability (which is understandable and fine for most and drive) while others actually ran the measurements and reported far slower speeds than NVMe should be offering. This makes SATA the clear winner in this price range.

 

You’ll save yourself a barely noticeable second on load time and that’s it. I’d definitely save the money and go for a high quality 2.5” SATA or regular M.2 SSD (which technically runs SATA protocol anyway). You can get much higher capacities for cheaper.

The point of NVMe is the high read/write speeds. For some (mainly video editors and producers), NVMe is beneficial to their work.

NVMe only makes a difference with video editing and transferring large files since the high read/write speeds help speed the process up a bit.

It's faster. At least on paper and in benchmarks.

 

I mean, it's like asking what's the point of Threadripper. A tiny fraction of the population has any use for it.

Thank you I don’t do any of that stuff so I guess I just stick with SSD only thing I use for my computer is to gaming, watch movies and use the Internet.
