HDD and SSD – How Do They Differ?

Before we dive in with their differences, let’s look at their similarities. Hard Disk Drive (HDD) and Solid State Drive (SSD) are both storage components of your computer. Both also come in external or portable form. But how they function and store data are completely different.

 

Whenever consumers shop for new computers, even second-hand ones, they always check for the storage. And what they commonly encounter as the storage of say, example 1TB, is the hard drive, and very rarely the SSD. But some desktops and laptops have SSD in them as storage. Ultimately, what you use your computer for will determine which one you will need more. Wait, you can run a computer without an HDD? Well technically, yes. But it will be tricky.

 

The reason why HDD is one of the first things you see when shopping for a computer is because its quality and technology is tried and tested with time. 5 decades, to be precise.

The technology behind hard disk drives is well known and well-tested. Hard disk drives have been around for more than 50 years, steadily increasing their storage capacity and decreasing their physical size. HDDs rely on spinning disks, or platters, to read and write data.

Spinning platters and moving arms are what mainly compose a hard disk drive.

Hard disk drives consist of one or more magnetically-sensitive platters, an actuator arm with a read/write head on it for each platter, and a motor to spin the platters and move the arms. There is also an I/O controller and firmware that tells the hardware what to do and communicates with the rest of the system.

HDDs have stood the test of time. They have a trusted and reliable technology. Moreover, they are more affordable than SSDs even with the same storage amount. And compared to SSDs, they also come with more storage in the market. The bad? They use physical power. The moving parts can stop working when your computer is mishandled, especially laptops.

The drawbacks to HDDs are a result of the mechanical parts used to read and write data, as physically finding and retrieving data takes more time than electronically finding and retrieving data. The mechanical parts can skip or even fail if they are handled roughly or dropped. This is a concern in laptops, but not as much in desktops. HDDs are also heavier and use more energy than comparable SSDs.

An SSD, on the other hand, utilizes flash memory. This means that its processes are electronic, not physical.

Solid state drives use flash memory to deliver superior performance and durability. Because there are lots of small, moving parts inside your hard drive — magnetic heads, spindles, and spinning platters — it’s easy for things to go wrong and you could lose your important data. Without moving parts, SSDs are more durable, run cooler and use less energy..

SSDs run on NAND technology. And no, it is not an acronym. Unlike HDDs, SSDs have gates and charges.

SSDs can be thought of as large USB drives; they use the same base technology. NAND, the technology in solid state drives, is a kind

Death Stranding will also be released on PC

After announcing a few days ago a tour to the four corners of the planet to promote his next title, Hideo Kojima surprises us with a new Death Stranding announcement.

This surprise will delight more than one because Death Stranding will not be a PS4 exclusive, and it will be released on PC early summer 2020. Kojima announced the good news on Twitter earlier today.

While many players will undoubtedly be happy about being able to enjoy Death Stranding too, we doubt that it’s the same for Sony. The timing that Kojima chooses to reveal this information is a bit special; there are less than two weeks before the release of the game on PS4. This is obviously not of the taste of all players either, especially those who have already pre-ordered the game on Sony’s platform. Some have not hesitated to express their dissatisfaction, and even plan to cancel their pre-order. This is not something that will appease the sometimes virulent rivalry between console players and PC players. If the heart of the story in Death Stranding is to create links, it does not have this effect on players right now.

Anyway, now that we know that Death Stranding will also be released on PC, the question of the platform arises. No details have yet been revealed on this subject, and it is likely to be a thorny subject with the candidates that immediately come to mind. It’s been a while since there is a war declared between Steam and Epic Games due to the exclusive games of Epic Games Store, which attracts more and more developers thanks to its more advantageous remuneration for them. It remains to be seen who will win the fight for Death Stranding. The future will tell.

505 Games to Publish Death Stranding on PC

Story 348240805

Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding, one of the most anticipated games of the year, is set to launch on PS4 on Friday, November 8th. It tells the story of a man traveling across a wasteland to save humanity from annihilation after various supernatural events start to plague the landscape. It seems to also have heavy themes revolving around interpersonal relationships, we think, although no one can quite be sure as the trailers are all incredibly cryptic. We do know it features Conan O’Brien, though, as well as a number of other celebrity voice actors that are sure to immerse us fully in this strange world.

Death Stranding won’t be a PlayStation exclusive forever, though. Kojima always intended for it to be playable on PC, and in the coming months 505 games will handle porting it over. 505 has been behind the recent Control and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, as well as ABZÛ, so the Death Stranding certainly seems to be in good hands. There’s no release date set as of now, but it’s projected to be available “Summer 2020” with more details in the near future. It’s unknown if the game will release on Steam, GOG, or some other platform (I find the Epic Games store unlikely), but it will likely be announced soon.
