Game Loading Tests
Here we manually time (with a stop watch) game level loading times.
We loaded our test maps in Doom 3 and Quake 4. 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.
Game load tests show us that the RAID setups are identical in the amount of time taken to load the games. As for the external storage, the eSATA loads games much better than the USB device.
