Upgrading to SSDs boosts PC performance by up to 80 pc - Western Digital Study

Kolkata, Oct 12 (UNI) Consumers are looking to upgrade their PC components to extend their computing devices’ life and enhance productivity, according to the recent ‘PC Health and Upgrade’ study1.
The research found that over 51 per cent of the respondents feel that upgrading from HDD to SSD is critical for enhancing their PC performance. However, more than 80 per cent of PCs in the country are still supported by HDDs, and 4 in 5 PCs have 500GB as internal capacity, both of which exacerbate performance-related issues in PCs.
Predominantly used for productivity linked applications, the survey also finds that a PC has become an all-purpose device today. Consumers buy PCs and laptops for a variety of reasons such as, generic computing (62.5 per cent), productivity (59.3 per cent), entertainment (57.6 per cent), education (57.2 per cent), social networking (55 per cent), video conferencing (43.6 per cent), gaming (42 per cent), multimedia creation (36.6 per cent) and only 4.4 per cent of the respondents use them for other activities. Therefore, PC performance matters more than ever before, as the consumers want to do more in less time.
