SSD - Turbocharging & NOx


Judahs Freakin' Priest.
Popped that chewing gum sized SSD into this new low-end laptop, and it is neck-snapping quick.
Also deleted the hibernation file, moved the paging file to the 2nd, roundy disc, and loading web pages once again is FAAAST.

Now, off for another 16gb of ram, and I be 1 happy camper.

Oh, yeah, dual-booting Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 10 LTSB 2016 - you guys still hardcore with PCs and doing CAD and such should def consider going this route.

Gak, move the paging file back to the SSD.

Nope, not a chance.

That's where the commit files are put. If you put them on a spinner when you swap programs you'll have a nice delay instead of a snappy response.

Re: SSD - Turbocharging & NOx


When the 2nd 16gb sodimm gets here, I will disable the pagefile altogether.

If you do that you won't have a place for crashes to write logs.

There was a time when this was a major no no because SSDs have a limited number of writes. Certain tasks would write the equivalent of the entire SSD multiple times a day.

Re: SSD - Turbocharging & NOx


With 32gb ram, even 16gb ram, the page file becomes an appendix.
Remember, W7 was released with a 1gb ram requirement. Under that situation, mapping HD space to the memory space was a necessity.

Anyway, enjoying the zoom-zoom under the hood for now.

Re: SSD - Turbocharging & NOx


The difference from HDD to SSD really is amazing. We're also considering doing the same with my nephew's laptop which he intends to use for gaming, but that could be pricey. With some research (like this source here) we thought that maybe SSHDs could be considered. If anyone could give feedback that would be appreciated.
