external vs internal SSD and sim performance

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but would there be any difference in performance between running the sim on an internal or external SSD? 

Thanks!

Internal SSD’s will give you much better load times. 
 

I have a WD black external and a SAMSUNG 970 evo internal. And the internal blows it away. I stoped putting games on the external.

It really depends on the SSD itself and the interface. In the thread that was linked above there is an explanation about the potential differences.

Oops, not quite sure how I did that! Have corrected my original post. Possibly explains why I haven't been thanked!😄
