Re: All about SSDs

Man, I wish these didn't cost so much. They are to me any way as I'd rather spend that for a really good graphics card. http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/445...iew/index.html I was refering to this size drive.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220625

Re: All about SSDs

Actually I did find that page before by myself but thanks Hence my conclusion.. SSD still works when 100 % full but performance might be lacking (although I didn't see that guy's conclusion stating something concrete?)

I opologize. That was for a SSD, but you did not look at it soon enough. Newegg changed the deal on you. Sorry you missed it. Heck of a deal too.

Those 60/64gig ssd's are not in machines to be filled up. Take my rig for instance. I have it as the boot/system drive. 20gig used at the most about 50% of the drive. Everything else goes to the 500gig platter drive. Point 2 With Intel RST you would be installing that drive to be used byt the operating system as a cache drive only. Nothing at all is going to be put on the drive. When we buy those small SSD's we already know this and are not even the least bit concerned about filling it up.

Re: All about SSDs

Right. SSd's can be 99% full with no problem because they do not require defrag utility to run optimally like platter disc hhd's. Old hard drives need to have 10% apx. free space so the defrag utillity can temporarily move files around during the defrag operation. In saying that I would not want to exceed 95% on a SSD if it is the system drive. Not for the defrag because you can not defrag, but because the OS is always adding small temp/log files. Over time can amount to alot.

I have my OS boot drive use IRST Twin 64GB Crucial M4 SSD in Raid 0 ICH10R and get fairly good access times.

I have used both. IMHO I think the days of treating SSD's with kid gloves are gone with newer technology the number of writes are way beyond what most people will ever reach. I have had these for about 6 months and have noticed no performance drop. I'll let you know if I notice any changes.

PS I do ONLY use it for OS almost all programs and data are on mechanical drive but only due to size limitations.

I wish I had a board that uses RST. That would be cool. For those that don’t know, SSD caching (Intel Smart Response) is a feature built in to Intel Z68 Sandy Bridge motherboards where you can add a smaller volume SSD to your existing platter based hard drive to increase overall system performance. Users often experience a quicker more responsive system after doing this. That’s great if you have a Z68 system and don’t want to spend $200 on a new SSD to speed things up. But, what about users who don’t have an Intel Z68 based system?

I'm sorry I though you were using CrystalDisk Mark. CrystalDisk Mark, as well as programs like HD Tune, write compressed data to the drive, which is not desirable for an SSD. Most manufactures use ATTO for their benchmarking.
I didn't look close enough at your benchmark....
