XPG SX8100NP 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD Review

Game Launch Times

One area that we will test are launch times, specifically games.  The testing is simple, we will launch a game till it loads to the main menu and time it.  For these tests we do have at least one comparison included so the numbers make a bit more sense.  We are using a 1TB Mushkin SATA SSD 2.5” drive for comparison, which is the main boot drive.    

Battlefield V Launch Time

In Battlefield V there is literally only 1 second difference between the load times of the SATA SSD and the XPG SX8100 SSD. 

Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Time

In Read Dead Redemption 2 we again see almost a 1 second difference.

Metro Exodus Launch Time

In Metro Exodus the result is even closer, on the Mushkin SATA SSD it takes two minutes fifteen seconds and 7 milliseconds.  On the XPG SX8100 it takes two minutes fifteen seconds and 1 millisecond.  Therefore, it is the same.
