Will an SSD reduce hangs occurring while .wav files load?

Recommended Posts

I'm fairly sure at least some others have experienced the brief hang/stutter when certain sound files load initially off of a HDD. This issue does not occur again when the same .wav file plays, suggesting to me the file has already been loaded into memory. This is present more often for me when the situation (plane/scenery/weather) is pushing the machine harder. Can anyone comment on whether or not moving to an SSD for FSX reduced or eliminated this issue?Thanks in advance!Noel

The SDD will eliminate the seek and rotational latency times inherent to a HDD, but it's to be heard if this increased speed will make a diference to your FSX expereince.FWIW SSD owners report about a 10x faster FSX start-up time ver HDDs.Cheers,- jahman.
