In 2019, QLC flash drive officially entered the market, although it is theoretically performance, reliability is the existence of TLC flash memory but also slag, but considering the actual price, QLC hard disk performance is between “slag and really good”, the price is much cheaper that is really good. What’s the use of QLC hard drives? Its biggest advantage is still large capacity, TB-class it should be the target of QLC hard disk, this capacity is suitable when the warehouse disk – the storage of movies warehouse disk can not, but for the game disk can still, especially for the current host extension.
The editor of Japan’s PCwatch website uses Samsung’s 860 QVO hard drive on the PS4 host, one of the most iconic QLC flash drives available.
Long-talk short story, a simple look at the results, Samsung this QLC hard drive 1TB as long as 10,000 yen, about 648 yuan, will also always send a Orico hard disk box.
After the installation ran down the CDM performance test, the following first picture is SATA interface, the second picture is USB external, the latter delay will be faster, so 4K performance decreased, speed also lost about 100MB/s, but the external extension of this is not a thing.
Swap hard drive on the main impact of the game is loading time, the original test of “Death stranding”, “Monster Hunter” “Red Dead Redemption 2”, “Ace Air War 7” and other games, divided into games from the interface load, the game scene loadtwoed two parts, as follows:
Four games of the results are not interpreted, in fact DIY players should be very easy to guess the results – HDD hard drive by SSD seconds killed, even if it is USB interface, QLC flash hard disk, loading time is reduced by 1 times, fast is HDD hard disk 2-3 times, of course, there is ace air war such a gap is not a particularly big game.
In short, the conclusion is very simple, and then slag SSD hard disk performance also want to kill HDD hard disk, this is actually only involved in continuous reading and writing speed, random performance is actually a qualitative difference, but not reflected here.
