hello i was wondering if anyone has used wbfs on a ssd?
and if so what the out come was?
SSD drive = Flash Memory = Works exactly the same as using a Pendrive
ssd is too expensive for wii
i dont think you will see much benefit. the transfer speed bottleneck in the USB stuff. i have run a benchmark on a SSD connected via SATA and the same SSD connected via SATA-> USB adapter. you can see it here.
i believe the speed for data transfer from the USB ports, through all the hardware, and through the cIOS ehci and di modules is even slower than what the USB -> SATA adapter is delivering.
the access time is still pretty fast, but as long as your HDD is not heavily fragmented you wont see much difference. assume the game you are playing is loading up 100 files out of the disc at once. the access time for seeking to the correct spot for all files combined would probably be less than a second ( average access time for a 7200rpm HDD is 4.17ms ). all the waiting you would do would be while the data is transfered across the USB adapter to the wii and through the IOS module to the RAM.
thank you for the quick reply and the information.
