10-15% of total disk space should be unallocated.so if we have enough with 100GB and leave 400GB out for overprovisioning will it slow down when it's full ?
Do you know if there's a specific specification to measure how well a SSD with preform when almost full compare to another drive under the same conditions?To pick a number out of the air, 90% full might be the point.
Even then, you will probably not notice slowness until you are very close to out.
90% is where you would be planning for an increase in capacity, regardless.
FWIW; microsoft flight simulator 2020 needs 150gb.
I need to upgrade early.
let's say I have a 500GB SSD and I only create a 100GB partition for Windows and apps.? If you are only using 100 GB of 500 GB, then it's not full.
If there's something else you're trying to ask about, I think you need to be a bit more clear.
I think this space is reserved on the EVO series only.... 120, 240, 480..for example a 500GB SSD, you should leave 75GB unallocated for 15%. Samsung's often ship with a 10% OP or the app for the SSD defaults to that.
I actually don't need more than 30 GB for Windows and apps.That would mean ~80% of SSD capacity is wasted and unusable. Obviously this is excessive.
10 - 15% for overprovisioning is plenty.
"30GB for Windows" is NOT viable.I actually don't need more than 30 GB for Windows and apps.
I am not a gamer but have some ISO's for the PS2 emulator that I store on another HDD.
what is better then, a partition of 100GB and 400GB unallocated or a partition say it 450GB and 50GB for over-provisioning. ???
