    Help Me Choose: Hard Drives

    The Storage drive permanently stores and gives access to the operating system, software applications, files and data on your PC. The storage drive is the only long-term storage on your PC, so it’s a good idea to consider how you are going to use your computer

    Hard Drive

    What Hard Drive Do I Need?

    Solid State Drive (SSD)

    An SSD, or Solid State Drive, is a type of storage device that doesn’t have moving parts that provide user with longer battery life, improved shock resistance and faster data transfer than HDDs. 

    Benefits of a solid-state drive:
    • Lightweight and cooler than standard hard drives
    • Greatly outperforms HDDs in read/write speeds
    • Improved performance
    • Durability
    • Better for mobile users

    Hard Disk Drive (HDD)

    Hard Disk Drive is a data storage device that uses magnetic storage to store and retrieve information on one or multiple platters. HDDs are more sensitive to shock and vibration because they use mechanical parts to transfer data onto disks.

    Benefits of using this type of drive:
    • Cost per GB is lower compared to SSD
    • Much higher number of write and rewrites compared to SSD

    Dual-Drives

    Some systems have a dual-drive configuration, they are equipped with both HDD and SSD storage devices, allowing the best of both worlds.

    Benefits include:

    • Primary drive: SSD for quick load times on key applications and tasks, such as Operating System, Photoshop and Video Games.
    • Secondary drive: HDD for cost effective storage for photos and video.

    How Much Storage Do I Need?

    The storage drive is the only long-term storage on your PC, so it’s a good idea to consider how you are going to use your computer and ask yourself some of the following questions that will help you to define storage capacity, performance and security you need.
    • Are you going to play video games, consume media, store a few photos and videos?
    • Are you the type of user that is looking for high storage capacity and low cost for home media centers, large back-ups, video and photos?
    • Do you regularly use programs such as AutoCAD, Adobe Suite or other programs for design or editing?
    • Are you going to use your computer to browse the internet, check email, work on documents for School or work?
    • Are you working with sensitive information?

    Storage Drive Size Storage Performance
    Less than 256 GB Acceptable storage for email and office productivity applications, internet browsing, and other basic functions.
    256 GB – 1 TB Adequate storage for most photo, music and video libraries as well as meeting typical office tasks like word processing or building spreadsheets.
    More than 1 TB Abundant Storage for large digital libraries, modern video games and content created in applications like Adobe Creative Suite.

    Hard drives powered through Intel® Responsiveness Technologies

    Wakes fast
    With an optional solid-state drive and Intel® Rapid Start Technology, your system is ready to jump back into everything you were doing before you closed your PC. Plus, you’ll enjoy ultralow power consumption in standby mode.

    Thinks fast
    Get fast access to your favorite applications with an SSD and Intel® Smart Response Technology. It recognizes and caches your most frequently used files, allowing you to access them right away.

    Renders fast
    Dual hard drives are best if you work with large product files, such as high-resolution photography or video. Using an SSD as a boot drive and a standard HDD for capacity is another popular option. You'll appreciate the extra storage with either configuration.

    Multitasks fast
    Redundant array of independent disks (RAID) is a storage technology that divides and replicates data across multiple physical drives. The drives operate in tandem, so they work much faster than a single drive and prevent data bottlenecks.

    Recalls fast
    Caching stores data for faster recall. When a CPU or web browser attempts to access data, the cache client first checks the cache. If the cache contains the requested data, the client pulls the data from the cache (this is known as a cache hit). The greater the number of requests retrieved from the cache, the faster you’re able to access the data. Because the cache accumulates data over time, it’s best to periodically clear it to manage overall system performance.

    FAQ

    eMMC (embedded Multi-Media Card) is a type of storage that is offered in an industry-standard BGA package consisting of both flash memory and a flash memory controller integrated on the same silicon die. Performance of eMMC storage is somewhere in between speed of HDDs and SSDs. eMMCs are often paired with cloud storage, i.e. files are stored on a remote server.

    Benefits of using eMMC
    • Better performance compared to HDD
    • Completely quiet compared to HDD
    • Low cost/performance solution compared to SSD

    Downside of eMMC
    • Not easily replaceable
    • Limited capacity being the common capacity range 32GB to 128GB
    • Slower performance when compared to SSD
    • eMMCs are often paired with cloud storage, i.e. files are stored on a remote server
