    Low queue depth performance is said to have been boosted by WD's latest deign.
    That's meant to be design right?

    I'm not sure I trust WD to make anything that is specifically for a certain use, and then not to change that spec further down the road after the whole Red/CMR/SMR fluff we've been dropped on recently..

    That said I do like the Game Dock idea, just need someone else to make one...

    "top-tier and high-intensive gaming "

    ...and yet, if you look at the recent story about someone running Cyysis 3 on the card, compared to an SSD... Zero performance increase.

    I smell... marketing getting involved!

    It doesn't really count this gen because games are still developed with HDDs in mind; worlds are built to minimise loading times with tons of trickery so there actually isn't much huge loading portions in most games. That combined with waiting for network connections just as much as loading items.

    Next gen though will be consoles coming with SSDs as standard, with devs having to use less trickery and having the ability to build bigger worlds with more data being able to go in and out, which of course will apply to the PC side of things too.

    It's why new console gens always excite me, it means PC side of dev can utilise a bit more of its actual performance lol
