BATTLE BE­TWEEN SSD & HDD

The Asian Age - - Technomics -

■ Have you been plan­ning to buy a new com­puter? Then, you might have come across the term Solid State Drives or SSDs in short. SSDs are the next gen­er­a­tion of Hard Disk drives. But is it worth it?

■ SSDs have been around for a while now, and if you have a mod­ern lap­top, it’s likely that the lap­top uses an SSD.

■ As the name sug­gests, a SSD – un­like a tra­di­tional hard drive – has no mov­ing parts.

■ Mod­ern tech­nol­ogy al­lows SSDs to have more NAND chips than ever, which means SSDs can have ca­pac­i­ties sim­i­lar to HDDs.

■ While SSDs are faster, more ro­bust and more power- ef­fi­cient, HDDs are more af­ford­able – es­pe­cially when it comes to larger ca­pac­i­ties.
