A Guide to PNY SSD

SSD's have become an increasingly popular option when it comes to storing data long-term. SSD's work off of a flash based memory rather than a mechanical hard disk.

Deciding which type of SSD is right for your computer depends on a few factors:

  • Checking the capability of your system, specifically checking for a SATA and/or PCIe connections
  • Capacity desired and compatible with your system
  • Speed you are looking for in a drive. NVMe drives will be faster than SATA drives if your system is compatible with NVMe.

So what’s the difference? SATA drives operate with the same interface as hard drives, but can provide up to 4x the bandwidth than a traditional hard drive. It is also an easy and cost-effective HDD replacement in a PC system to help realize faster boot times, quicker application launches and better overall system performance.

NVMe drives deliver a high-bandwidth, low-latency experience by accessing the flash storage through PCIe. You can do more in less time with NVMe; boot up, power down, and load applications up to 6 times faster compared to SATA based SSD’s.

Why Upgrade to an SSD?

SSDs, or Solid-State Drives, do not come with moving parts giving the ability to operate silently and be more reliable. SSDs provide a significant performance increase versus the traditional HDDs. Since the SSD uses flash chips, the time needed to locate the data is virtually eliminated as data is written evenly throughout the flash chip.
