Just a fun little BF4 video i threw together. The kill at the end was what gave me the idea to do it. It reminded me of the proton torpedo scene.

Alright guys - just in case anyone was wondering - because no one really could back it up before hand - had a question about SSD vs HDD in terms of FPS.

JUST to be on the safe side - I decided to do benches on my Win7 setup - see below - taken from my thread:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1480050/new-nvidia-337-50-drivers-battlefield-4-benchmarks-ht-on-vs-ht-off

Quote:
Right I couldn't stand the "suspense" so had to test - please do not relate these tests to the ones in the OP.
They were done in exactly the same way - but I have a lot more running in the background (vegas editing program open) - browser playing music from my radio station etc.
However the TWO results below - were running in the same test environment.

Both are win7 64bit home edition - HT ON:

2014-04-10 01:11:47 - bf4
Frames: 13626 - Time: 117141ms - Avg: 116.321 - Min: 38 - Max: 202

2014-04-10 01:24:35 - bf4
Frames: 12921 - Time: 112571ms - Avg: 114.781 - Min: 40 - Max: 192


First result is on my SSD
I then removed the BF4 folder from my SSD and put it on my HDD.
Then started downloading BF4 - closed origin - migrated the BF4 folder into the HDD install location
Did a repair install to be safe and restarted origin.
PC was NOT restarted.

Launched BF4 on the HDD and did the same test. Bear in mind there might be deviation as I'm not a robot but human - however as you can see the results are extremely similar to each other.
Thus I can happily disprove that "theory" of SSD > HDD in terms of FPS.
Load times were significantly different (over 3mins difference).

Yeah hardocp did one of these too and proved there is no advantage to an SSD, just in load speeds.

which is pretty important with BF4, one of the better chopper pilots on my friends list has a HDD and i have an ssd and i am usually one of the first people to load so i get him the little bird while it takes him for ever to load.

i can sit there for a minute or 2 just waiting on him to get in.

I believe it, I have been in DM games where you wonder where half the players are till a minute or so. I'm on a 2yo ssd and still loads quick. Thinking its time for a Samsung 250gb though.

It's especially nice on the Naval Strike maps - makes it easy to grab an attack boat.

Yeah I feel sorry for my lil cousin - I have about 1k+ points by the time he gets into the game -> he is on a laptop

I didn't read that article, but I have actually tried both on Windows 7 of having it on the ssd or hdd. I found that with the ssd I virtually always load into the map first when it changes...
