Using an NVMe drive for your operating system (OS) and an SSD for your gaming files can potentially offer faster load times for your games. The NVMe drive can quickly access and boot up your operating system, while the SSD can quickly load the large game files.
By having your OS on an NVMe drive, you may see faster boot times, faster application load times, and generally faster system performance. Having your game files on an SSD can potentially reduce game load times and improve in-game performance, especially when the game is heavily reliant on accessing a lot of data from storage.
It’s worth noting that the difference in load times between using an NVMe drive and an SSD for game files may not be significant for all games, as the load times can also depend on other factors such as the game’s code and the power of the rest of your PC’s components.
In summary, separating OS and games in different drives, OS in NVMe and games in SSD can potentially offer faster load times and better performance.
