SSD Size Practicality

Go to solution Solved by Kilrah,

No such thing. 

Is there ever a point where the size of an SSD makes it as slow or slower than a HDD? Like say 20TB of storage completely filled up.

SSD are instantanious unlike spinning platters and pickup needles of HDD

Depends on the SSD type, not on the size.

I was thinking that theoretically it would eventually hit a point where windows was the limit, and it just couldn't read fast enough.

They are limited by their data transfer buses, e.g. SATA, NVMe, etc.

The following is according to Linus:

SRAM is the fastest storage we have invented, with a latency of 1x

DRAM is 10x.

Optane is 100x.

NAND is 1000x.

The rest is variable.

 

If it's not true, blame Linus' first video on Optane.

Well its true enough to not be incorrect. But theres way more to it then that.
And things change (a lot) over time.

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!
