I believe he is talking about page outs being the same speed as ram.The SSD is used for storing things. The RAM is used to utilize as many of those programs at once.
Yes, but you have to admit, there couldn't be that much lag paging out to an SSD as apposed to a spinning HDDThey are still two completely separate things. You cannot yet have an SSD fast enough where you don't need RAM. We can all dream, but it isn't a reality.
There is more at play then just the physical ssd vs. ram chip. Ram is connected to the cpu on a much faster channel, among other things.
RAM is still about 20 times as fast as an SSD. While page outs exact a smaller performance hit on an SSD than a HDD, it still is slower.Is it really still important to have a lot of RAM when you have an SSD? I would think that virtual memory would be just as fast and you wouldn't even notice the difference between 2 and 4 GB or ram. Thoughts?
I didn't deny that, i merely stated exactly what you did, the SSD would have less lag then a HDD.RAM is still about 20 times as fast as an SSD. While page outs exact a smaller performance hit on an SSD than a HDD, it still is slower.
