If I get a hard drive rather than another SSD is there a way I can make my Hard Drive read and write as fast as my SSD? More about : ssd hdd fast ssd Best solution Puff3r April 6, 2013 5:24:02 PM A hard drive is a mechanical device limited by the speed of the platters and speed of the read heads. Short answer, without attaching another SSD to the hard drive as a cache device, no.
