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.

 

 

 

Lastly when the HDD is under enormous loads, the Momentus 5400.3 manages to still keep ahead of the notebook competition and even manages to creep up on the desktop drive - very impressive!
