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 light reaction time delay because no one is able to hit the button on the exact millisecond, however, all were right on the point of full load in each map.

 

 

 

Here the 7200.9 with its updated firmware, extra cache and latest advancements in SATA 2.5 added gives it the edge in both games over its previous generation drive and simply eliminates the competition in terms of performance.
