FPS, shortened for frames per second, is the frequency at which consecutive images are collected or shown. This definition applies to motion capture systems, film and video cameras, computer animation, and computer games. Generally, SSDs offer superior performance, reliability, energy efficiency, and durability compared to HDDs. Thus, SSD is very attractive to game users.

However, SSD does not directly impact FPS. It can only improve overall system performance and reduce game load times. FPS is primarily determined by the CPU (Central Processing Unit) and GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) capability. On the other hand, an SSD can contribute to a smoother gaming experience by decreasing stutters and lag caused by lengthy loading times or retrieving game data from a slow storage device.

To sum up, SSD is still worth buying for your gaming laptop as it can read and write data more efficiently, reducing loading times and smoother gameplay. To better maintain the high performance of your SSD, you should regularly monitor the SSD's speed and health. EaseUS Partition Master can meet your needs perfectly and cover you in disk health and speed tests. Its "DiskMark" tool can run a fast hard drive speed test and give accurate results.
