A question about SSDs for booting - Page 2

post #11 of 12
RAID0 SSDs is not an ideal solution IMO.

I agree with @Blameless above mentioning the RAID ROM taking more time at boot. In the earlier days of SSDs I ran a pair in RAID0 and this was my experience as well - any boot time shaved off was gained back (and more) by the time spent on the RAID ROM screen. Add to this the extra risks of RAID0 and it's even less ideal.

Eventually I dismantled the RAID0 array and just went for a single large SSD and boot times weren't really any different - the time spent on the Windows boot screen was about the same IIRC. There's likely some other members here that can explain the boot process much better than I can, but I suspect the boot drive itself is not the only bottleneck in the boot process (that's to say there may be some start up tasks that don't fully stress the boot drive).

Get the largest single SSD you can afford- no need for RAID.
