Every application installs/loads/updates faster, and every process goes quicker. It's only a matter of degree depending on the size of the program. so you're not really presenting a compelling argument. If you really can't notice it, that means your CPU is so slow that it bottlenecks your HDD. Which is embarrassing.

any application that isn't bloated is plenty snappy on an HDD. especially since the kernel has a page cache for a reason, if you're not swapping yourself to death most of your accesses will be from RAM anyway.

A lot of them do benefit from being on an SSD. Like Conan Exiles takes a long time to load in from a HDD, but is so much quicker to load from an SSD. any decently priced 500-1000GB SSD is more than good enough for tools and some games.

When I had my first PC in the 90s, a couple of games could completely fill up the entire HDD, You had to be a lot more careful then. Current day is a lot easier and you can fit way more games than you'll play in a year on a 1TB SSD, maybe even on a 500GB SSD.

SSDs are also really nice to have for virtual machines. The IO requirements absolutely kill virtual machines that run from HDDs. In my experience, something that takes hours in virtual machines running from a HDD, takes minutes instead from an SSD. Here at home I mostly just use HDDs for long term storage and for stuff that is fine streamed over a 1 or 2 Gbps network.

Hard drives are fast enough to saturate most people's LAN, and also responsive enough for network shares. But there is still a massive difference between a HDD and SSD for locally atached storage. My old Samsung 840 Pro is still in very good shape, very responsive, and much faster than any of my more recent HDDs. I've never did a reformat or reinstall of the OS, I even ran the OS without TRIM support for several years. It isn't as fast as it once were, but is faster in anything that just requires raw transfer speeds, and way faster in anything that is more sensitive to seek speeds.

The difference is very noticeable when you do something as mundane as a software update in a Windows 7/8/2012 VM. That kind of tasks takes forever when the machine is stored on a HDD, but very snappy on an old SSD like my 840 Pro, or even a cheap shitty newer one.

>> No.67921088

I just gave you an example of where an SSD shines and HDDs just fall flat. Virtual machines. I mentioned home networking since that's where you don't notice too much of the slowness of a HDD.

For raw linear reads, HDDs are fine, for small operations and random reads, SSDs shine. You really do notice when you work on a HDD and move to an SSD when your workload is IO starved. I have for a long time used an SSD for Windows and some software, and an HDD for everything else, but recently I've just started buying a higher capacity SSD instead, since VM storage benefits so much from it. For games it is more situational. Matters a bit for something like GTA5, but not so much that I care about getting an SSD for it, but for Conan Exiles, one should definitely use an SSD (the difference is like night and day).

"Most people" want things to be fast, cheap and don't care about numbers, and SSD's are just so massively fast in comparison and the prices have dropped so much that even low to mid end laptops have at least sata SSD drives in them, all smaller form factor things such as ultrabooks and convertibles all use m2 because regular hard drives are just too large for those form factors.
