Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered: Comparison Shows Load Times Between PC, PS4, PS5 and Steam Deck

Spoiler: PS4 doesn’t even come close to the other platforms

Now that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is officially out for PC, we already know how the game runs on both high-end and entry-level machines. Polygon published a different test: Game loading speed From Insomniac Games PC, Steam Deck, PS4 and PS5. We are talking about different storage units on each platform.

The site ran two different tests. One is to use the game’s fast travel, jumping to the same point on all four platforms. The second shows the loading time when loading a save in the game’s main menu.

For the fast-travel test, Spider-Man traveled from the Harlem Police Station to FESTA, a major point in the game. Polygon says that the time was set by pressing the fast travel confirmation button until the end of the hero’s control. This journey is from one end of the map to the other, i.e. two opposite sides of Manhattan. Tests were performed five times on each platform.

The website says their PC is equipped with an Intel Core i7-10700K, 32GB DDR4 and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, but they’re still missing the most important piece of information: the storage used. The Steam Deck was equipped with a Samsung EVO 512 GM microSD.

Fast travel time

  • PC: 2.8-3.5 seconds
  • PS5: 3-3.1 seconds
  • Steam Deck: 6-8 seconds
  • PS4: 17-20 seconds

For the second test, it was clicking to resume the game from the start menu while controlling Spider-Man. The results in this situation were:

Loading start menu save

  • PS5: 2 seconds
  • PC: 2.9-3.35 seconds
  • Steam Deck: 7-13 seconds
  • PS4: 35 seconds

You can imagine that Polygon used a PCIe 4.0 SSD because it is a high-end computer and also because of the speed achieved. I did a quick test on mine Kingston’s “basic” SATA SSD And the time when I got the same snippet to load The fastest trip was about 6.30 seconds (five times). It took 10 to 12 seconds to start the game (3 times). The rest of my setup is: Ryzen 5 2600X, RTX 2060, 16GB.

That said, the performance of the Steam Deck (with this microSD) isn’t bad at boot, as it achieved basically the same results I achieved with the SATA SSD.
