Will A Partitioned SSD Run Slower ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have my Samsung 830 128gb set up with a 40gb partition for XP and the rest has Win 7 on it. The 40gb part is aligned with Paragon and Win 7 doesn't need alignment, right ?
My question is does partitioning an SSD affect it's overall performance.

I cannot fully 100% say for sure, but assuming an SSD follows the same rule of an HDD, no, it will not. Unless the partition is being ACCESSED, there will be no slow down whatsoever, or performance loss. For example, if you partition 10GBs off of your SSD to store certain games, unless those games are being accessed, there will be no performance loss, because there are no files being accessed.

Nope partitioning has no effect.

just like what E-Peen said, only if being accessed does it matter.
