An evolution in our hardware. The history of our solid-state drives (SSD)
We acquired a new solid disk in our work teams. The new hardware is a 512GB HP Z Turbo Drive G2 solid-state drive (SSD).
Our new tool allows us to achieve optimum results in machine start-up times, faster access times, file transfers and great optimization in programs that use a large flash memory, such as Adobe applications that require 70% of available RAM and rendering and virtual reality programs (VR).
These programs use a large virtual memory, so it is advisable to change the hard disk by an SSD storage unit: we will obtain a higher transfer speed than with classic HDD disks, since they do not have moving parts.
On the other hand, the SSD storage units are constituted by having a greater tolerance to the blows, a longer useful life, produce less heat, less noise and consume less energy.
So, given the importance that our company gives to SSD memories, we present a timeline with all of the ones we have used so far during the last 3 years. We started using a Toshiba 7200 rpm solid disk, which compared to the HyperX Savage we noticed an improvement in all Adobe software, but not in engineering programs like Catia V5 or PTC Creo. It also provided us with fast access to programs and file reading, but it did not show a notable improvement in performance when it came to working.
Finally, this year we have acquired the latest solid disk HP Z Turbo Drive G2, which gave us remarkable performance and speed when you work with 3D rendering, virtual reality programs (VR) and graphics projects.
Because working conditions matter as much as work well done.
