SSD capacity

<< < (3/15) > >>

Unless you play those exact games, all in a row, 2TB is still ok.

noisyturtle:
Don't forget 4k movies. Some movies on my drives are over 40Gb, and there are hundreds of them!

Max bitrate for UHD movies is a little over 100mbit, Store them contiguously on HDD, it seeks about as fast as SSD would.

Rhienfo:
8TB is probably more than enough. Probably necessary when more games start to get to ridiculous sizes but for now you could probably be fine with 4TB.

Also if you sale the seven seas it adds up as well.

I hope companies start to just give us increasingly large sizes for the sake of marketing. Like 128TB of storage would be funny to see.

4TB is enough in most cases yes, but if your hobby is cinematography and you collect 3000 movies, then you need a bigger drive, or else you gonna end up having multiple ones and shuffling....

in that case, i say: Why the hell do you have 3000 movies
