I have an SSD, and I was wondering what's the best way to remove game loading times (the bits in-between areas in Half Life 2 for example).
It's already significantly faster than my other, mechanical drive, but I was thinking of ways it could be improved:
- Enabling compression on the filesystem on the SSD - with a fast CPU on an IO-bound system, shouldn't this speed up read times as less data needs to be accessed?
- Other software tweaks in Windows
- Hardware settings in BIOS / firmware upgrade
