If you are still undecided about if you should buy an SSD then this might help persuade you. Corsair recently tested SSD vs HDD using Battlefield 4 load times as a measuring stick. As a FPS gamer you always look to find any edge you can on the battlefield and a SSD is one of those helpful edges when it comes to the beginning of a match. As with making sure you have equipped the right equipment for certain maps it can be just as important to getting the right vehicle and if you are still using an HDD to run Battlefield 4 then you know the frustrating load times when trying to get into a match. This is where Corsair was nice enough to test different SSDs and HDDs and give us load times.

For the test Corsair used a Western Digital 3 TB Black HDD with 64 MB of cache vs a Corsair Neutron GTX 240 GB SSD.

So as you can see that the SDD is obviously faster than the HDD which isn’t a surprise but just think if you have a slower HDD and the gap widens even more.

You can see that in both cases of loading a campaign or online the SSD is significantly faster. In the long run it can give you more time playing instead of waiting or if you want that helicopter first it could be yours. If you are still on the fence about an SSD and play alot of games this is a good indicator for any online gameplay. I recently installed BF4 on my HDD to save space on my SSD and immediately had to change that due to the length of time it took to load games. I had mine on a WD Blue 1 TB drive and it felt like it look a couple minutes to load.
