Hi. Im using a 1tb intel 600p nvme ssd.

When I load huge open world games such as gta v from it....Every 2 minutes or so I get a huge 30fps stutter. I move game to 7200 seagate enterprise HDD and problem dissapears.

Also when I run Demul(dreamcast emulator)..I get the same framedrops.

The common denominator is the intel 600p nvme.

So my question is,,,Does anybody else here on Gamefaqs run games off of their nvme ssd?? And if so,,what it your performance like in open world games??

Specs: processor:i7-5850k OC'd 4.4 ghz, ram:32 gb ddr4, gpu: 1080 ti founders

My buddy runs Escape from Tarkov off an nvme SSD. He said the performance isn't much of a difference from his Samsung EVO 850 SSD. Doesn't really matter.

Doesn't matter. It's just a different form factor.

I have a 960 evo can't really tell a difference. Unless you do a lot of writing/readable.

What is your motherboard?

Also, it appears the Intel 600p series is rather slow for a M.2 PCIe x4 NVMe SSD.

even if it's "really slow" for an nvme SSD it should still be faster than a HDD

NVMe is massively different to a traditional SSD, i reckon you're thinking of the M2 connection, that is just a form factor.

NVMe is a lot faster than a standard SSD, but it barely makes a difference in gaming FPS. Certainly shouldnt be causing stuttors though TC.

I couldn't tell the difference in Fallout 4 when playing it from either my 840 Pro or 950 Pro. I didn't do any objective testing/timing but load times weren't noticeably faster and texture pop didn't seem to improve either leading me to believe something else was the bottleneck (apparently there's a mod that uncaps your framerate during load screens which can help with load times so I'm assuming there's some level of setup needed beyond just grabbing the data)

That being said, neither seemed to cause any issues. Both seemed to run it equally well/bad. NVMe drives can get very hot and throttle though so it might be good to position a fan so that it's blowing on it.

What's going on in your case sounds like a vsync issue though, where when you drop below 60, even just to 59 fps, the framerate drops to 30. You have an nVidia card so my recommendation would be to disable in-game vsync, then turn on adaptive vsync in the nVidia control panel. This will keep you synced at 60 when you have higher fps to prevent tearing but when you drop below it will turn off. This might cause a bit of tearing during dips but your dips won't be nearly as bad.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

no big difference for casual use that I've noticed between my 850 evo and my 960 pro evo.

Boot times are similar
game load times are pretty much the same
opening and closing applications take a similar amount of time

The only time I've seen a significant difference is with copying and pasting large files and rendering videos.

There will be a huge difference in load time if your 960pro is plugged into a ultra m.2 i go form bios to login in less then 1 second the windows logo literally flashes if you blink you miss it.

I get fps issues in GTA V when using the menus or map, but never in game.

And you need to try another game besides GTA V and the emulator.
