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 are very important to our readers and the Patriot VPR100 really struggled here with an average speed of 16.52 seconds. That makes it the slowest NVMe drive that we have ever tested on this particular benchmark.
Let’s wrap up this review!
