A normal PCIe SSD will be able to speed up games with Microsoft DirectStorage

Solid state hard drives or more commonly called SSDcame to offer us a much more fluent Y fast than using a hdd. So we’ve used them to speed up Windows startup, copy and transfer files faster, and of course have a fast charge in games. Now, Phison confirms that the PCIe 4.0 SSD will speed up this employing DirectStorage.

DirectStorage technology from microsoft came as one api That will allow you to take more advantage of the speed of SSDs in games, basically. And the thing is, how many times have you seen that the loading time of the games barely changes after changing from a SATA 3 SSD still NVMe SSDs Of high speed. That is why Microsoft developed this API to be able to make the fastest SSD drives take advantage of their speed difference. Thus, it is expected to achieve instant loading screens in games using a PCIe 4.0 SSD and DirectStorage.

You don’t need a new SSD to take advantage of DirectStorage

Phison has confirmed what we wanted to hear, the fact that no need to buy a latest generation SSD in order to use this technology. And it is that, the SSD disks that we can currently buy in the market already meet the requirements to use Microsoft’s DirectStorage. In fact, the discs NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD specifically, they already offer a better performance to the speedy SSD of the playstation 5 console. Thus, we compete with the best that the current console market offers and we already know that these reEsports Extrasover the course that video games take.

That said, regarding the DirectStorage API, it will reach its maximum performance with the PCIe 4.0 SSDalthough their minimum requirements they asked for a PCIe 3.0. This technology will work by making the SSD and the GPU communicate more directly and with fewer steps than the traditional method. So the solid state drive that stores all the assets, texturessound and records from the game passes this information to the RAMwhich is much faster.

From here it is received by the VRAM memory of the Graphic card and later this unzip and render everything much faster. This results in greatly reduced load time and is something that will take advantage of the speed of PCIe 4.0 SSDs.

The first PCIe 4.0 SSDs optimized for DirectStorage appear

In recent weeks, Phison has revealed the I/O+ technology used to speed up workloads with DirectStorage. Also, Sabrent has released its new PCIe 4.0 SSD called Rocket 4 Plus Gwith optimized firmware to speed up load times in games under this Microsoft API. Phison has been involved in this, because with its I/O+ technology it aims to offer greater performance in these specific cases. In fact, the SSDs that employ controllers Phison E18 they will receive I/O+ and optimizations to benefit from DirectStorage.

This confirms the arrival of free firmware updates for specific models. These would be, specifically, the SSDs that have controllers PS5108-E18 and memory NAND B47R of Micron. Later, they confirm that they will arrive for more SSD models, something to be thankful for, since they are updates that offer greater performance. Still, we have to wait until 2023 for them to be launched first games that they take advantage of Microsoft DirectStorage and we can see if a PCIe 4.0 SSD is as useful as they say.
