As I'm out of PCIe slots, I wanted to add one or more SSD drives for cache.
I'm curious if having more than one would be useful - and how to best use them with AE/Premiere/etc.?
BTW - I'll add my off-topic experience with purchasing a PNY drive.
Fry's had a PNY drive on sale, and oddly enough it seemed to be faster than any of the other SSDs I'd looked at:
550MB/s seq. read, 520MB/s seq. write speeds, and 85,000 random read/write IOPS
However, I found that they had entered the wrong info in their ad, and it was about 60K IOPS instead (which is still pretty good).
I ordered the faster one thru Amazon, and it came in a white box with nary a sheet of paper inside besides the drive.
The interesting thing is ... the only difference between the Fry's SSD and the higher end one I bought, was the box itself. The SSD's both had the exact same label and part number.
I asked the PNY folks how I could tell I got the correct drive, the fastest?
Surely I could have them look it up by my serial #?
So, even though PNY's seem to have very good specs, I have no idea (and neither do they) how to verify that you're getting what you pay for.
Seems like a product designed to be counterfeited.
