Which Games benefit more from having an SSD?

#1AshWilliams78Posted 8/22/2013 11:15:07 AM
I know certain PC games suffer from Long Load Times, Texture Pop In, and Stuttering which are 3 issues I've experienced in allot of my games.

Is there a list that shows which games run better on an SSD over a HDD?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

To be honest, you're not going to see much in-game performance increase from having an SSD, if any at all. What it does kill is boot time and loading screens, which depending on the game can be painfully slow with a regular hard drive.

sandbox games, GTA4, Skyrim, etc

A lot of games have long load times (like Crysis 1) and those are greatly eliminated

FFXIV on SSD was night and day, I zone so much

Skyrim runs great but GTA4 seems to stutter like crazy when installed to my SSD. When I install it to my HDD it runs fine.

GTA4 seems to have a lot of problems, period.

I like games that I play frequently on SSD, especially multiplayer. If I am going to only put 20 hours in a game, no point.

It's not worth it to buy an SSD for gaming. Buy it for better Desktop performance, end of story.

Battlefield 3 and Crysis 3 are pretty great to have on an SSD, Skyrim benefits heavily. It's not worth it for the civilization games because most of the loading times are due to the cpu crunching stuff. At least, i didn't notice much difference, and I had it on a ramdisk.

PS2 and wii isos are pretty good to have on an SSD. Currently residing on my RAMdisk is GTA: San Andreas.

Minecraft is a great example, if you can ramdisk it even better. Basically, if you're moving you're loading, no way around it.
