Default HDD too slow to record gameplay? - 04-26-2012, 02:42 | posts: 519

Hey guys,

I have an annoying issue. My Notebook has aside of the SSD also a 750 GB 5400rpm HDD built in. Dxtory (my preferred capture software) benchmarks a writespeed of 75mb/sec. That said, I can not capture gameplay while recording at 1080p or 720p (yes Dxtory can capture in 720p while gaming in 1080p) smoothly, there is always some stuttering going on despite having ~80 FPS ingame, regardless of what setting I choose in Dxtory.

I figured out, when I record at 480p it runs just fine, so the HDD must be struggling with the writespeed...

Obviously I'd like to record at least at 720p. Does anyone know if there is some way to boost the writespeed or can help me in another way?
Thanks in advance
