How does write speed affect an OS drive performance? Tags: SSD Performance Storage Last response: October 23, 2012 2:05 PM in Storage Share nightmare981 October 21, 2012 6:14:44 AM The title basically explains my question but to give an example, Ive seen SSDs with ~450-500 MB/s write speed then SSDs with ~120 MB/s write speed. Does the lower write speed affect on OS drive performance? If so, is the performance hit noticeable or negligible?

For example Crucial M4 (which is the most often recommended drive) has low write speeds, but high write and access speeds. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
