My elementary teacher said you should aways go with the bigger number, so in this case 7200RPM > 5400RPM.

So i take it being a Hybrid drive won't help it out perform the 7200?

SSHDs are barely faster than HDDs (that's why Intel Optane is so trash). Get a SSD + HDD combo rather than a SSHD.

The Firecuda have 8GB SSD so should be pretty fast for files less than that. So the Firecuda could actually be quite good.

Although that would be write speeds. I suppose the read speed will still be low unless cached.

I also have a AMD 2600X and I believe it has software that works to combine a SSD and a HDD into a SSHD or something? kind of like intel optimum, but with any SSD. I know Linus did a video on it before. If that's the case i guess i should just go with the faster RPM's?
