    $\begingroup$ Hardware questions are off topic. However with fast SSDs you will experience a speedup while working. It speeds up loading and saving files and that is a real benefit and does make a difference. Improvement with a fast SSD or even a RAID0 of SSDs is noticeable and makes work an easier and smoother experience. Rendering however in most cases will not benefit a lot. Only if you were rendering loads of extremely fast frames that take a few seconds you will see improvement in speeds because they need time to be written to the drive, but in vast majority of cases the difference will be negligible. $\endgroup$ – Martin Z Feb 4 at 11:23

    $\begingroup$ It pays off to have a look if it is possible to get 2 smaller SSDs connected to RAID0 instead of one bigger capacity SSD. Sometimes you might end up paying less and getting a faster storage solution with some trouble connecting them to a RAID and installing the OS on it. Since the memory adds up, you can get the same amount of storage this way as well. It might be argued that you loose some reliability, however, I have been using SSD RAIDs on 2 computers for the last 3 years without any problems. I do make backups to be safe, but that's a good idea in any case. $\endgroup$ – Martin Z Feb 4 at 11:32

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about hardware $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Feb 4 at 11:42
