Game Level Loading Times

 

Here we manually time (with a stop watch) game level loading times.

 

We loaded our test maps in both Half Life 2 and Doom 3. We did the tests over three attempts on each and used the average time to give a fair example. Due to the human factor, there is a slight reaction time delay because nobody is able to hit the button on the exact millisecond, however, all were right on the point of full load in each map.

 

 

 

There is little difference between the 7200.9 and 7200.10 in game loading times as it seems to have more pull on the system than the hard disks pure performance.
