SSD will degrade quicker?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Will it degrade and loosen the health quicker if I install a heavy load game on it and play on it for a lifetime?

Not to mention, today's SSD's are made to take a fuck ton of writes. I have an 840 PRO from Samsung, it's quite old in terms of PC age, and has over 12TB of writes. Still works like the day I got it. As long as you buy a good SSD (like any Samsung) you'll be transferring it to quite a few future builds.

TLC memory has ~ 70-80 TB of writes per 100 GB of endurance, it varies depending on controller and algorithms and how much of it is set aside as reserve or used in pseudo-SLC mode for caching and acceleration.

MLC is at around 100-120 TB of writes per 100 GB of memory.

 

Reading data from SSD doesn't wear it out, so since you install the game just once and then just mostly read data from it.
