SSD F1 2021 benchmark suggests NVMe speeds are an essential gaming PC

SSD technology is changing the PC gaming experience as we know it, and more games are making the most of lightning-fast drives. However, new benchmarks for F1 2021 on Windows 11 suggest that NVMe SSD speeds are no longer a luxury; they are now a staple in 4K gaming.

According to tests conducted by Compusemble on YouTube, F1 2021’s SSD requirements are higher than any other PC game on the market, with a playback speed of up to 439 Mbps. For context, that’s almost double the maximum performance of a mechanical hard drive, and it almost exceeds the capabilities of a solid-state SATA configuration.

Of course, if your platform currently uses an NVMe drive, the voracious read requirements of F1 2021 shouldn’t be a problem. Not only is the interface much faster, with speeds of 2,000 Mbps, it’s also capable of 64,000 commands per queue, unlike the meager 32 available for SATA devices. Naturally, this means that in-game information can be pulled from storage faster than ever before, allowing developers to create expansive experiences that push things to the limit.

Before you start sweating, you should note that not all games are as glutinous as F1 2021, so your SATA drive should still help for now, especially if you’d rather crank up fps rather than play 4K. That said, read speed goals are changing with consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X finally sporting SSDs under the hood; So if you want to keep pace with the Joneses, you might want to consider giving your aging storage a well-deserved retirement.
