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: Game load times is very important to our readers and the Crucial P1 1TB SSD did pretty good here and actually bested the much more expensive Corsair Force MP600 PCIe Gen 4.0 x4 drive. Most NVMe drives will load games faster, but the Crucial P1 1TB drive was faster than all the SATA III drives in our testing.
