Do I need SSD if I have 1 gbps internet? Tags: Hard Drives SSD Internet Storage Last response: July 22, 2012 2:50 AM in Storage Share darkstar845 July 22, 2012 12:34:02 AM Theoretically, if I am downloading a torrent and my download speed is always 950-1000 mbps, will it bottleneck if I only have a hard disk? Do I need an SSD?

Internet download speeds are measured in Gbps (lower case b), which means Gigabit per second. HDD & SSD Read/Write speeds are measured in GB/s (Upper case B) means Gigabyte per second. 900 Gbps is equal to 112.50GB/s. 1,000 Gbps is equal to 125GB/s. I don’t know the model of your hard drive but I’m pretty sure there wouldn’t be any bottleneck issues.
