Game Level Load Times

 

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.

 

 

 

When it comes to games, the HP 1740 controller manages to do quite well only being a little slower than the Intel ICH8R onboard controller.
