For the notebook upgrade compared to the desktop more complex game player DIY test ability, low voltage notebook CPU standard pressure and "U"; and the memory of different frequencies of DDR3, DDR4, L standard pressure and low pressure; it seems that most of the notebook is still in use 5400 RPM mechanical drive time the installation of SSD is notebook upgrade is the most simple effect is obvious.
Compared to desktop computers, we have relatively low requirements for the performance of notebook computers, then in the process of upgrading the hard disk drive is the pursuit of performance or large capacity, or a combination of both? Xiao Bian will come up with three solutions and everyone.
According to different needs of the user groups, we will be roughly summed up the notebook upgrade program for the following three:
1, mechanical hard disk replacement of large capacity SSD;
2, to CD-ROM mechanical hard disk, SSD is added to the original mechanical position;
3, SSD M.2 with mechanical hard disk (or SSD).
Each of the three solutions have their strengths and weaknesses, and we will answer them in the post.
[scheme 1: large capacity]
What is the large capacity SSD? At the present stage is the 480GB or SSD more than 512GB.
Large capacity: the advantages and disadvantages of the advantages and disadvantages of this scheme are very obvious, the first large capacity hard disk is the inevitable trend of the moment, from the aspects of performance and capacity gradually expand the lead and mechanical hard disk, a long period of time without the need to upgrade; secondly, direct installation of large capacity SSD from scratch and high performance, enough to meet the daily needs of the office and the game. The disadvantage of this scheme is that the cost is slightly higher, the need to pay a one-time cost of about a thousand dollars.
[a] CD-ROM occupied two programs:
This is most likely to accept the majority of users upgrade scheme, only the original mechanical hard disk to CD-ROM, installed in the original location of 120GB-256GB SSD. (Note: select the appropriate size of the CD-ROM a hard disk box)
The advantages and disadvantages of the project two: low cost, rational use of resources. SSD 300-500 only need 120GB-256GB yuan cost, the hard disk is only need 20-50 yuan, and the original mechanical hard drive can continue to play the waste heat carrying game, Blu ray film and other large files. A drawback is that CD-ROM is generally SATA2 interface, mechanical hard disk installation to the performance will be discounted; not an upgrade in place, after may need to upgrade again.
But such collocation for young users, especially for the game, large capacity bearing large demand program users, if your budget is not sufficient, and are willing to try, in the original disk capacity at the same time with SSD to improve the performance of platform, and are not suitable for the.
[scenario three: SSD M.2+SATA]
Walking in the forefront of the forefront of the pursuit of the ultimate performance and large capacity of the user (not bad money players) can choose the program three, the M.2+ large capacity SATA 3 SSD way for notebook upgrade.
M.2 especially the NVMe protocol of M.2 SSD, with a slim figure and 2Gb/s ultra high speed will become one of the future direction of the development of SSD, especially the best scheme is notebook super this upgrade. This upgrade is only required to install SSD M.2 alone, and then replace the large capacity SSD SATA mechanical hard drive can be replaced. The advantage is that the speed is extremely high, the disadvantage of it, in addition to expensive or expensive.
We only provide three notebook upgrade ideas for everyone, let everyone in the choice of SSD the new things you can buy according to their own needs, let the beloved books back to life, reach the performance and capacity balance.
