FSX on SSD (slc) VS SSD (mlc)

Recommended Posts

PLease excuse me if this has been discussed before:

 

I was just reading about the differences between the SLC and the MLC versions of the SSD drives and was just curious if anyone is running FSX on the much faster SLC drive?. I read that the the SLC uses a single cell to store data and in which case is able to access data much faster. The MLC uses multi level cells and looks at all the cells in order to access information, making it a bit slower than SLC's. Comparative differences are SLC are 10x faster; 3x faster sequential write and 30% more expensive than MLC. Either way, Im curious to know of any improved performances in FSX with this drive type or with any other high intensive software applications. I am currently running FSX on a dedicated more traditional MLC drive and have noticed improved performances over the standard HDD. Would love to get some info on the SLC drive type...Thanks in advance

SLC too expensive .... MLC is plenty good longevity for any power user.

Ryan, they are expensive but I was just wondering if there was anyone using one, and if they have noticed any significant gains from using one like not having blurries or micro stutters...i.e, anything that may still be noticeable like in the less expensive drives. Truth is, If I had the money I would get one but I was just checking. Thanks for your response though
