A little while ago we looked at Seagate’s Barracuda 1TB SSD. Now we’ve been given the opportunity to benchmark and compare their more premium offering, the Firecuda 510 1TB NVME Solid State Drive (SSD). So how does it stack up? Is it worth spending a bit more?
As previously mentioned in our review of the Barracuda 1TB SSD, not having an SSD is an almost inexcusable offence when it comes to PC gaming. There are extremely huge file sizes involved with PC gaming these days. Games such as Monster Hunter World: Iceborne have high resolution texture packs which pile on the GBs and storage space gets eaten up quite quickly. Larger file sizes effectively mean longer load times depending on how fast your drive can read the files. The advantages an SSD has over a conventional hard disk drive (HDD) are numerous.
