I'm building a new PC based around an FX9590, 2 x R9 290X, 32GB 2400MHZ Ram and a EVO 250GB SSD. For my data drive I'm looking at either a 4TB HDD or a 4TB SSHD.

My question is, what if any performance improvements will I get with the SSHD in the system as opposed to just the HDD?

Thanks

Dave

You will only get a performance increase in common files such as boot time.
A good SSD+HDD config will beat a single SSHD. SSHDs are generally budget oriented or for laptops to take less space.

For data, the SSHD will read files that you have put on there an use a lot very quickly, files that are not used much will be read at the same speed as a usual HDD.

Hi
Thanks for the prompt reply, what I meant was do I go SSD + HDD or SSD + SSHD. I'm also using Ramdisk to speed things up.
