Turbo-Charge Your PC with an SSD for Faster Gaming

Jul 25, 2011

If you’re like most gamers, you’ll take any competitive edge you can get (strictly within the bounds of proper sportsmanship, of course). But you might not be aware of one of the simplest and most powerful ways to upgrade your PC. A Solid State Drive can deliver a faster, more satisfying gaming experience at home or on the road.

A Secret Weapon for Better Gaming Performance

When you’re looking to upgrade your PC’s gaming performance, your hard drive might not be the first consideration. Most gamers turn first to a newer graphics card or more RAM. But what if you’ve made those improvements and you still aren’t getting the performance you demand? Is it time to scrap your entire system and invest in a new one? Maybe not. A Solid State Drive can inject new life—and much higher speeds—into your gaming experience.

Tune Up Your PC with Samsung SSDs

PC games get more demanding every year. Even if you have a fairly new system, chances are you sometimes have to lower a game’s performance specs just to make it playable. And when you’re competing against others, a split second can make the difference between victory and defeat. Samsung Solid State Drives (SSDs) perform four times faster than conventional hard drives. That means you can expect faster load times, more responsive play, and less losing.

If you care about the source of those benefits, you might start with Samsung SSDs’ Toggle NAND flash memory, which increases read and write speeds, or its 256 MB of DDR2 DRAM cache. The use of a 3-Core Max Controller enables consistent performance over time. Whether you understand all those terms or not, you’ll get the same competitive edge.

Built for the Road

A Samsung SSD makes for an easy yet powerful upgrade for a desktop PC, but it’s also built to help you take your game on the road. Whether you’re taking your laptop to a friend’s house, a LAN gaming centre, a gaming convention, or just on vacation, Samsung SSDs are compact enough to come along. Just be sure to check local laws about travelling with a concealed weapon.

Samsung SSDs are also lightweight and durable. They don’t have moving parts, so they’re especially capable of withstanding the inevitable wear and tear of mobile computing. For extra assurance—and maybe to provoke a little envy—they’re protected by a sturdy brushed aluminium casing.

You won’t care much about those good looks if your battery quits on you at a critical moment. Samsung SSDs consume much less power than conventional hard drives, resulting in longer battery life for epic battles. To meet all your anticipated computing needs, the drives are available in multiple GB capacities.

Quiet Operation Lets You Focus on the Game

You’d never, ever play games in a library, but it’s reassuring to know you could if you had to. Samsung SSDs generate virtually no noise, making them suitable for even quiet environments. Wherever you play, your drive won’t drown out the finer sounds of the game, such as your opponents’ faint pleas for mercy or the delicate crunch of their bones.

A Smarter Solution to Maximise the PC Experience

Sometimes the simplest upgrades are the most powerful. You don’t have to break out the toolbox to get a serious boost in gaming performance. Just plug in a Samsung SSD and start enjoying your new advantage. Your only remaining problem might be finding someone willing to take you on.
