Why is it everyone is just posting about the hard drive speed?

5 posts in this topic

I agree with you iosh.

Load speed is very dependent upon configuration and startup options.

I purchased DimmDrive to evaluate the difference in streaming.

Specifically, I am going to be streaming DayZ standalone through twitch 

and evaluating the end results with fraps and general stream quality.

 

I only have 16gb of ram, so I am very interested "if" this can help me, 

or if I would be better off with that amount dedicated to running the game.

 

I'm excited to test this out.  I haven't had the chance yet.

War you will have to let me know if you see any real difference, I am going to be loading up fraps for a few games and see if it is actually making a difference. If its purly load time that it helps me on then I wasted my time. only found afterwards that the money back thing is not really an option.

The reason is that, when it comes to high end gaming, faster is always better.  This applies to everything.  Then it boils down to the game specifically, as in, how much that specific game can take advantage of speed increases.

 

For example, 2 games:

 

Window's Solitaire:  The game is just a few megs in size and the loading is instant on slow HDs, and there is no in-game transitions, graphic loading, map changes, etc.  Doesn't really benefit from faster anything.

 

Skyrim:  The game is a beast.  It takes forever to initially load, and in-game dungeon/house/map transitions can have load screens ~20+ seconds long.  Dimmdrive has been reducing these to 1-3 seconds, let alone graphic popping on the screen faster.

 

 

The TLDR is that for high/new games, faster is almost always better.
