SSD Storage Medium

The MSI DC111 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all desktop computers of this age and type.

Amongst similar types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
