    Cashe Drive

    I have seen 32 gig SSD drives going for about a $100 now. Would that be a good cashe drive for Speededit or would that be too small?

    SSD drive usually have slower write speed than HD. You need to test before use it.

    Also, 32G cache sometimes was not enough for daily editing use. I checked my clients' cache storage everytime I visited them. There always have some cache files left behind by SE sessions and they might be several gigs per file. Usually I suggested a 50-100G cache to my clients if he not plan to check cache space every time before SE launch.

    For best performance, set cache to a drive other than video array and system cache (usually c.
    In my R&D machine, I only have system and video drive, so I set the SE cache at video array. The video array run at speed about 200MB/sec. They works fine in most projects.
