Thread: SSD's Impact on Editing Performance?

    Default SSD's Impact on Editing Performance?

    Hi everyone!

    Currently upgrading my PC right now to improve 4K editing abilities and I have a couple questions about SSD's. I know that there are many things that I should do to create the absolute perfect machine, but I don't have the kind of budget to upgrade everything right now.

    I know that Intel is the go-to for video editing, but about a year ago I bought a custom built Asus gaming PC, with the intention of slowly upgrading / customizing it for editing.

    Brief run down of specs:

    A88x-pro motherboard
    GeForce GTX-760 gfx card
    32gb 1866 MHz RAM

    I can post more specs if requested..

    It performs pretty well, but could be better when editing 4k, and I believe my hard drives are the issue. My Adobe Suite is installed on slower SATA drive, and my footage and scratch disk is a 4TB Seagate External HD, USB 3.0.

    If I purchase a 250gb SSD and use it as my scratch disk, and a separate 60 - 120gb SSD to re-install my Adobe Suite on, is this going to make a significant difference? Or is there going to be bottlenecking because all of my footage is on a standard external HD (with usb 3.0).

    Thanks!

    Well here is my basic spec and I have no trouble at all with 4K, you do have VERY limited SSD at JUST 250, get a decent AND FAST one, all SSD are NOT the same, and small hard drives, external hard drive are only any good as backup as far as I am concerned which is wy I have 9TB of INTERNAL, two of which are used JUST for editing, one for Photoshop and stills, one for Video, 3Tb each

    You don't say what the processor is, or I can't see it.
