Corsair V128 Nova   Review

Game Loading

Of course having all this blazing speed to hand isn't much use if it doesn't continue into real usage. After the behemoth of the previous page we'll cut this right down as I'm sure the conclusion we're heading towards is obvious by now.

For Company of Heroes we used an 8 player Skirmish game using the Route 13 map. Timings were taking from pressing the go button to the start box appearing. With 4 different races to load (US, British, Wermacht and Panzer Elite) on a very large map the loading times are very fast indeed. If you're playing a 2 player map you'll barely have time to get comfy before the game is afoot.

Need for Speed Shift definitely benefits from the reduction in loading time as races are much shorter than a RTS session and so the time savings quickly accumulate. Even with such a large track as the Nordschleife and the small loading time the Corsair Nova still manages quite a spanking on the similarly equipped Crucial M225. 

Phew. Nearly all "resulted" out. It's time for the conclusion and, to quote Mr Rolf Harris, can you tell what it is yet?
