Does an SSD boosts your FPS in games?

Recommended Posts

Possibly in open world games ie. Arma or Fallout where it is constantly loading the map and if you are going fast enough where it isn't loading the map fast enough you may have a lag spike. But a SSD in general is a great upgrade.

In 99% of cases no. It may reduce stutter in open world games when you move from one part of the the map to another, but a ssd generally only benefits the loading times in games.

SSD's don't do much of anything in terms of improving in-game performance. They can sometimes speed up loading times, but that's really about it.

They speed up loading times and may prevent momentary FPS drop when, for example, you enter a new area and it has to load textures for things off in the distance.


 Almost as cool as my temps

No.. apart from the reason above but it does generally improve overall system performance and responsiveness.. A worthwhile upgrade but not if your sacrificing too much performance else-where.

In the vast majority of cases, FPS will not improve. However, loading times will.

No it will only decrease load times.

If your not on a tight budget then get at least a small one for about $70 or less.. If the budget is very tight and your looking to squeeze every drop of gaming performance, then drop it.

IN case your wondering these are my specs:

Intel core i5 6600K

EVGA GTX 980ti superclocked

16 GB of DDR3 memory

 

It would be a shame not to invest in a SSD for that rig.. You WILL see the difference.

Generally speaking no, in some games with a lot of real time asset streaming it can give you a boost though.

 

That said, I would not buy anything above 500$ without an ssd. Not getting it would be a mistake.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

He will see BIG difference in every every other task besides games, but today SSD is a must in a system like this...
