If you are planning on buying an SSD (Solid-state drive), then you might wonder how much you should be spending. In this post, we’re going to show you exactly what size SSD you need, depending on the size of your games.
What’s the difference between SSDs?
In simple terms, SSDs use flash memory, rather than a spinning hard drive. This means that you can read and write data to the SSD in a fraction of the time it takes to read and write to a hard drive.
Flash memory also has a much higher density than hard drives. This means that you can store more data on an SSD than you can on a hard drive.
If you’re looking for a fast boot-up time, a high capacity SSD is probably the best choice.
How much SSD do you need?
In order to find out how much SSD you need, we’ll first need to calculate the storage capacity of your games. This is done by dividing the total amount of data stored in your games by the average amount of data stored per game.
Let’s take a look at an example. Let’s say that you have a 1TB hard drive and you have a total of 20GB of data stored in your games. This means that your games store around 1.2GB of data per game. If you have a 1TB SSD, then your games will be stored on the SSD and you’ll only need to worry about the remaining 19.8GB of data.
If you have a 1TB SSD and you have a total of 20GB of data stored in your games, then you’ll need to divide 20GB by 1.2GB to get the total amount of storage you’ll need for your games. This means that you’ll need an SSD of 19.8GB in size.
How much space do you need for your games?
Once you know how much space you need for your games, you’ll need to consider how much space you actually have. If you have a 1TB hard drive, then you’ll need a minimum of 1TB of storage space.
However, if you have a 1TB SSD, then you’ll only need to have 1.2GB of storage space. This is because the remaining space on the SSD will be used to store your games.
The good news is that if you have a 1TB hard drive, you’ll be able to store around 3.2GB of data. This means that you’ll have enough space to store all your games.
If you have a 1TB SSD, then you’ll only be able to store around 19.8GB of data. This means that you’ll have enough space to store around 16 games.
Do I need 2 SSDs for gaming?
If you have a 1TB SSD and you want to play more than 16 games at a time, then you’ll need to have at least 2 SSDs. The reason for this is because the maximum amount of data that you can store on a single SSD is around 1TB.
The good news is that the price of SSDs is going down, which means that you’ll be able to get 2 SSDs for the price of 1.
