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: Phison E12 and E16 controller have never really done well when it comes to game load times and that is again the case here as the Sabrent Rocket NVMe PCIe 4.0 drive finished this benchmark at 14.700 seconds. That is basically 4.5 seconds slower than the fastest SSD and less than a second faster than your average SATA III SSD.
