Hi, for any speed gurus out there, I was just wondering if with my current setup, having both the TEMP/TMP directories AND the pagefile on a separate SSD would actually be beneficial? Or noticeably beneficial.
Currently I have an SSD drive for OS and program files (with some data of course), and then another dedicated SSD drive as a scratch disk for After Effects, Photoshop, etc. I know it is big help with programs such as these (I think, anyway). However, I also recently started pointing my TEMP/TMP directory to the SSD scratch drive. (I have 32gb, soon to be 64gb, of RAM.)
I'm wondering if it really helps to have the Temps point there and if I should point the pagefile there as well? Would there be any "real-world" benefit?
i doubt you would notice any difference, so i wouldn't bother moving the temp dirs. the more ram you have the less windows will have to swap out data to the pagefile. so with you having that 32/64 gb of memory, you should be fine leaving that on the os ssd too.
