    Hi Guys,
    Quick question before I take the plunge with an SSD.

    Will an SSD make any difference to the performance/rendering speeds of these applications, or does an SSD just make the app open faster, and work slightly snappier?

    I need to speed up renders etc..

    I'm on early-2011 i7, 16GB Ram, but still find C4D freezing on simulations, etc..

    Will an SSD help speed things up?

    Thanks all!

    I am no expert on this, but the SSD help in reading/writing to the drive. If it is all CPU stuff, then no, it will not help

    before i returned my crappy MBPr because of lousy graphics and ghosting IR issues i ran alot of renderings with C4D. SSD makes C4D open faster but thats about it mostly, rendering and modeling is all about CPU/GPU.

    For normal rendering CPU load is so high that hdds are fast enough. But maybe when rendering on a multi cpu system sometimes also the HDD is a problem. But for these cases it is mostly sufficient to have one drive for a source components and a target drive for the rendered images/videos.
