Intel SRT vs OS and Most Used items on SSD

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, which is faster? Having an SSD and using Intel Smart Response Technology, or having a separate HD and SSD with the OS, and some frequently used items on the SSD? To be more exact, these are the HD and SSD I'll be using..

HD : 1TB Seagate 7200.12 32mb http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX32592
SSD: Corsair Force Series GT 60gb http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX34786

Separate SSD for sure.

seperate is faster for the size of the SSD
however Smart Response Technology alows for far faster speeds for the full 1tb drive,
so if u want faster access to ur movies, or have a massive games collection it may be the better way,
or if u jsut want Bf3(skyrim... waght ever tickles ur fancy) and OS, to be uber fast separate SSD is the way to go biggrin.gif

SRT does not work on movies. The drivers recognizes sequential reads and does not cache them.

I'll probably go with the separate drives, and have the OS and Google Chrome and a couple games on the SSD, then when I don't play those games I can just move them to the HD and put the games I play most often on the SSD thumb.gif
