Fast, faster, SSD

Since yesterday, there is an SSD available in my PC at the office, practical a OCZ Vertex 2 Extended with 120 GB – and the colleagues where quite impressed, how fast such a drive really is.

Practical: When building one of our large projects, a lot of time is spent for linking – with a conventional harddisc nearly 2 minutes (yes, it is a quite large system). This time was reduced to about 5 seconds, just by using a SSD instead of the harddisc – reproducable.

In total, a gain of at least factor 3-4 was reached – the whole process, which took 30-40 minutes before, is now done in 10 minutes maximum.
