Hello, i have a samsung EVO 970 250gb m.2 ssd that only runs my OS. My secondary drive is a firecuda hybrid 2tb sshd that stores all my games and others applications. When playing games under load my game wants to drop frames, or have really bad mouse lag/stutter in high commotion areas.
To semi fix this issue on call of duty black out, i have to set the game to low priority, when i shouldn't have to do this.

Question, is my SSHD not loading the files quick enough for my games? i also don't know much about computers. Thanks.

i also ran this test on the sshd. not sure what the numbers and such mean but its somthing. i also reformated my computer and bought a new m.2 evo 970 as well as the firecuda sshd. my computer wasnt running games this slow before i upgraded storage. could it be an issue with having an m.2 and sshd? the m.2 is plugged in on the motherboard slot. sshd is using sata.
