Windows 7: 16GB of RAM upgrade and WEI memory score unchanged

Hi there
surprised at the low Disk score -- most people with SSD's get this up to at least around 7 --some even over 7.5.

Here's mine

SSD is 120 GB OCX VERTEX plus (I now buy samsung M3's which are even better).

Laptop Sony VAIO VPCEH processor Intel I5 memory 8 GB.

My Disk rating is 7.2 -- and that's even re-running while I was downloading an update to vmware workstation (8.0.4).

Cheers

That score was before the crucial 128gb, 256gb, and 16gb were installed.

You are correct jimbo45. After getting off of my duff and Googling I also discovered that it's a Hybrid hhd. You are also correct, a true SSD would wake that laptop up a bunch.
Warning to all. Once you get a SSD you will want more of them. They are habit forming.

Indeed , and it's still an expensive habit. Grabbed a 256GB and 512GB for the laptop this weekend (demo Hyper-V box). Cost me about double what spinners would have cost, but I can't go back now that I'm spoiled by SSDs in my other boxes...

I see no mention of hybrid drives, besides Jim's post.
The listing in the ops specs show an 80gb SSD & a 750gb 7200rpm drive.
The hybrids have small 8gb of NAND chips incorporated on the circuit board.

Well I can be wrong again,(still) but this is what I found.
Intel® Solid-State Drive 310 Series ? Compact Size, Big Performance
It would be nice if the O/P would let us know.

I went from 8 to 16 and my Wei stated the same...
Part of this may be that unless you're running something additional that can actually make use of that much RAM, you're not going to see any real improvement in system performance, even for the un-modded high-end gaming of today. 8GB is more than enough for typical use (gaming included).

SSDs are good for fast boots, but for real performance boosts on high-end systems for frequent reads and/or writes, check out RAM drives. (Yes, you can actually use that extra RAM for something, at least.) Here is a good general explanation by JJ from ASUS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cqfhZvyE80

Since we're talking about SSD's, man... I don't like not being able to run ccleaner with the 35 passes. I don't like not being able to totally wipe the free space and render it gone and other security settings my privacy suites do. I'm not having any luck, but surely there's a way to totally remove elements from your SSD for good without wearing it's life down. If anyone knows anything holla...

Ok, I've read up on this a bit. Seems like everyone is going for them for the speed. But when it comes to privacy and security, there's next to nothing you can do. I just think that's strange, the newest hottest thing can't securely erase files.

If you are so worried about privacy, keep the drives or physically destroy them.

Qosmio X505-Q898 laptop was able to upgrade to 16gb RAM
FWIW, all the literature for the Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q898 (and, I assume, the others in this series) was to max out at 8gb RAM. Well, I am here to tell you that is not true. FYI, I have Win 7 Home Premium as the OS. I initially installed 2 x 8gb Kingston sticks and the Q898 recognized but 8gb...
