Windows 11 and Direct Storage

Post by KaffeemitZimt »

With Windows 11 around the corner and its exklusive support of Direct Storage it got me thinking about my Primocache Setup. Currently i use a 980 pro nvme as lvl. 2 cache for my system. As well as for slower Sata SSDs as for good old HDDs. Will Direct Storage be able to use the lvl2 cache (nvme) for a game installed on a hdd? Or will i need to install it directly on some nvme for direct storage to be usable?

Thx!

I don't think so.

I'd work on that if I were Primocache.
Direct storage is on of the most anticipated features of Win 11 and you will NOT be selling Primo to any gamers if Direct Storage and similar from Nvidia and AMD are not supported!

Windows 11 introduces an upgraded OS storage stack for DirectStorage. Currently Microsoft only open its new DirectStorage API to game developers. We are waiting for more technical documents from Microsoft.
