  • What is the latest on SSDs and swap/page files?

    So, now that the dust has settled a bit, what's the latest thinking on enabling/disabling the swap/page file on SSD systems?

    Thanks!

    3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

    Use the pagefile. The small write/reads are greatly improved on a SSD. Also, even if you have 8gb ram, some form of pagefile is always in use.

    Lastly, performance degredation is a non-factor with TRIM. By the time the drive degrades it will be like still having a 256mb thumbdrive. Useful, yes, but for cheap you could get something new/shiny/faster.

      also when it does degrade you can still read, just not write, so you dont loose the data. there is no better file to put on an SSD than a page file. it the perfect thing for an SSD eneable it, along with the trim features and you are laughing.

        Is there any information about how much writing can be done to a SSD before it becomes 'degraded'?

          With TRIM, you shouldnt start noticing it for about 10 years based on what I've pickup up from review sites. Longer than MTBF or degredation of equivalent rust drives.
