Game Load Time Testing
To test game load times we used the benchmark for the game title Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers that was released in July 2019. We bumped up the resolution from 1080P to 1440P, but other than that we left all the settings at their stock values. Pretty much every SSD on the market today claims to be aimed at gamers, so this test shows you how the drives we tested perform on an actual game title in a series that every gamer has heard of.
Benchmark Results: The ADATA XPG GAMMIX S50 Lite 1TB SSD delivered amazing performance when it came to game load times! It was the fastest SSD in the group that used NAND Flash memory and was only bested by the Intel Optane 905P SSD with 3DXpoint memory. When it comes to performance the one area where the XPG GAMMIX S50 Lite stands out is in game load times.
