Primocache not writing to L2 storage

Post by neojist »

16gb 3200mhz ram+
1 OS ssd

L2 has cached write-data, see the value in "Total Write (L1/L2)". If you want to speed up writing, you need to enable Defer-Write.
For more information, please see

Another point to note is that a write cache space, whether it is a shared cache space or a separate write cache space, only means that write-data can be cached, and does not necessarily mean that disk writes can be accelerated. Defer-Write must be turned on at the same time to speed up disk writes. Otherwise, write-data cached in the write cache space can only speed up disk readback.

after enabling defer write, and letting my game run a bit while walking around so it loaded assets, it cached almost 100% of the read data to my L2 Cache after i closed the game! thank you for your help
