Split from another thread. Hi, About the speed of storage, how fast can the computer grab the data anyway ? If you factor in processing time, is storage still the bottle neck ? Assuming a READ, PROCESS, WRITE cycle like for photoshop batch processing, which takes 0.5 seconds, 3 seconds, 0.5 seconds. If storage is twice the speed, it would only shave 0.5 seconds off the overall time taken, that's assuming the computer can even grab the data at twice the speed. Where is the current practical limit where you won't see any real life difference ?
