I didnt know about those, but I doubt they will make a (perceivable) difference. I've been on my new laptop for a couple of weeks now, it's the first computer I've used that has an SSD and I can't believe how fast it is. More drove speed would be wasted on it.

WHAT?! :)

Of course not :) Certain operations are still slow, even on SSD. For example loading large files or some find & replace in all files in a large folder.
Smartphones are essentially SSDs, and they're really slow to boot. Imagine booting up your smartphone in under a second...

don't even want to imagine the price of those

They will be made using materials that are cheaper than materials used for SSD, so once they are mass produced they will completely replace SSD since they will be not only faster but also cheaper.

I have a gaming PC, but sadly I did not check how much memory the PC had when I bought it lol. Only 250gb SSD, which is complete shit for gaming! I installed Arma 3 for 20gb, and not enough with that, when joining a server the game downloads an extra 1 gb size of files!

So I am thinking of buying another internal SSD that possesses 1tb, but I do not know which one. Any recommendations? I guess the SSD has to be pretty fast due to gaming.

You are perhaps overrating the boost that you will get from SSD for gaming purposes. By all means, have your OS on SSD and it will make a massive difference to your PC, but as far as gaming goes I don't think the difference warrants the price tag that comes with a "pretty fast" 1TB SSD hard disk. Why do you need so much hard disk space on SSD? I would get another 250GB SSD and a hard disk (or preferably a NAS) if you want to store photos / videos / whatever.

I make music, downloading plug ins for FL Studio takes alooot of space. I also record my gameplay etc.. So there's not really any difference when playing on SSD or HDD?

I won't say there's no difference, because there is, and you will notice that games and maps will indeed load faster, but during the actual gameplay there isn't all that much reading and writing to disk (obviously depending on the game) so the difference won't be heavy. Don't trust me: check benchmarks, especially for games you intend on playing because benchmarks will vary slightly from game to game.

In your case I would definitely get a hard disk, but you can also get another smallish SSD. It will end up cheaper for you this way. You really don't need to record gameplay on an SSD.

oh noice. #-o now with W10 my PC keeps using 100% of the disk, and that's really annoying me. I really want to switch to SSD's but the price won't let me, so that might be a solution in the future

I am in the same boat. Have only 250GB SSD. I think I am going to buy a 128GB NVME M. 2 SSD and a Crucial M300 525GB Sata SSD. As Mutu said it does make a difference when loading games but if you want to record game play use a HDD or two in raid 0. It depends on the resolution and fps you will be recording at.

Anybody knows anything about this smartphone?



Well, I already found out everything I need to know, it's pricey...

It's a top of the line phone so its price is iPhone comparable. It's not an "easily the best phone ever" as the ad makes it sound but it's an excellent choice.
