Gamer benefit
from Samsung
NVMe SSDs
NVMe Advantages: Your competitive edge
Gamers can seize a competitive advantage over rivals,
and experience superior gameplay with the industry
leading performance of Samsung NVMe SSDs.
This case study shows how and when gamers can best
experience the performance gains of an NVMe SSD
upgrade.
Samsung NVMe SSD acceleration for 4K and DirectX 12 games
NVMe SSDs have transfer and access speeds far superior to those of SATA SSDs. For more graphically demanding games which involve
loading larger files and more disk input/output operations, the time savings increases. Our tests showed game loading times significantly
reduced by 7% to 37%. Most of today’s games can already greatly benefit from NVMe SSDs. But in the near future, with more 4K and
DirectX 12 games, NVMe SSDs will be an essential for all serious gamers.

NVMe SSD gives high-end systems maximum benefit
While NVMe SSDs noticeably benefit all compatible systems, performance benefits are maximized when combined with other high-end,
high-performance components of gaming PCs. Our tests showed that NVMe SSDs used in conjunction with top-rated high-end CPUs and
GPUs delivered the greatest performance benefits. The trend towards 4K and DirectX 12 games calls for ever more powerful performance
hardware. NVMe SSDs ensure that you get the most from your gaming system.
