    IGN PS4 HDD/SSD Comparison

    Which Should You Buy?

    The results indicate that a hybrid SSHD drive can deliver many of the benefits of a traditional SSD but at a considerably lower cost. Although the SSD offered the best speeds in most cases, the SSHD only fell a few seconds shy of its scores, but both offer notably speed increases over the stock drive.

    It's important to note that when it comes to disc-based game installs and boot-up times, all of the storage solutions are bottlenecked by the speed of the disc drive, whereas level loads and overall system boot-up time see significant gains from a SSD or SSHD. Games purchased through the PSN and stored entirely on local storage, like Resogun, see performance gains across the board.

    In short, a SSHD hybrid drive provides the speed improvements of a traditional SSD, but greater affordability and total storage capacity.
    Granted, they didn't test a standard 7200rpm HDD. And in some cases the hybrid HDD was worse than the stock drive.

    Am I reading that right? The standard booted up AC4 in 10 seconds and almost a minute for SSD/SSHD?

    Yes something wrong there.
    Forget install times from blu ray, that isnt going to be much faster.

    I dotn think it was very scientific, its been rushed out, the console only released this morning.
