As we all know, main hardware of a computer is basically processor and graphics card. The smoothness of game mainly depends on graphics card. The quality of video card directly affects frame rate in game. However, a netizen recently asked an editor that his computer has roughly same configuration as his friend's computer and they are on same network, but game loading is not as fast as other member's, and difference is mainly a minute or two. Looking at configurations of both computers, it was found that fast computer uses a solid state hard drive, while network user's computer uses a mechanical hard drive, and other configurations are same. So can SSDs improve gaming performance? The next installment home will give you non-fiction.

Solid State Drive

Should game be hosted on a solid state or mechanical hard drive?

We recommend that you place it on a solid state hard drive. If your computer is equipped with a solid state hard drive and a mechanical hard drive, it is recommended to split solid state drive into two areas. disk is used for system installation, usually 50G-100G, and D disk is used for installation. Commonly used software, games, and mechanical hard disks are used for data storage.

Generally speaking, read speed of a SATA3.0 SSD is about three times faster than that of a mechanical HDD, and read and write speed of an M.2 NVMe SSD will be even faster. However, capacity of ordinary SSDs is mostly small. At present, capacity of mainstream SSDs is about 240GB, and initial capacity of mechanical hard drives is 1TB. At present, speed of traditional mechanical hard drives has reached a critical point, and solid state drives are future trend.
