    The obvious answer is no. You still need plenty of storage for games, with modern games often being more than 50 gigs. Hard drives can simply give you much higher storage at much lower price points. But SSD's because of their comparatively better affordability and way better speeds are becoming more of a thing. So it's not that hard drives are dying, but SSD's are 'living', if you would.

    There are use cases where storage speed does not matter. In that case I'm always going to buy HDD instead of SSD if its not just a bit cheaper ($ per GB)

    Follow up question : will the read and write speeds of magnetic storage, or more precisely the SATA connection, ever come close to what we are seeing with an SSD today? I mean, case in point I can buy an inexpensive 2 TB M.2 drive with 5 gigabytes per second or a high-end 8 TB pcie 4 card that uses 16 lanes to deliver 15 GB per second for a single drive.
    With ever-expanding capacities, a 100 terabyte hard drive would take forever to fill without similarly expanding connections.

    Less prone to failure?? BAHAHAHAHA...
    Maybe less prone to FREQUENCY of failure, but when an SSD fails? It fails HARD!! WAY worse than a platter.
    I'll stick with traditional HDDS, and anyone with any sense will do the same.
    But honestly? WHY can't people learn to use different formats IN TANDEM? Why must a new technology squeeze out an old one (if it's still proving useful on ANY level)? I thought this was the era of "inclusivity" and "diversity"? Why be "drive-ist"? Why can't ALL drives just get along and be accepted?

  • Gargoyle

    I use an HDD for large scale storage and an SSD for the OS and very important, non intrusive programs that are small. Plan to use some spare SSDs for certain games, but not on my boot drive.
    For whatever reason, this gets seen as weird. Don't come crying to me when a DRM fucks something up by being on the C drive.

  • besorgter Burger

    It seems to me that nowadays it's all about how to fit more and more storage space on limited hard disks. But alternative concepts to compete with (SATA-) SSDs are no longer pursued. For example SSHDs or hard disks with more or independent read/write heads. - Linus once made a video about hard disks with such read/write heads. But it seems that it was a concept that was presented at a trade show but never made it to the market.

  • Rich Foley
    Rich Foley Hace 15 días

    It's all about the SSD/HDD price ratio, which seems to hover around SSDs being more expensive than HDDs by 5-7x. Until this gap is closed there will be a market for HDDs.

  • GhostDog

    They are old tech but not useless. I run an ssd for a boot drive, an ssd for higher demand games, rest goes on an hhd. When i can get a ssd for the same price as a 2TB hhd, thats day mine disappears

      @Robbie Torkelsonn Oh I doubt that, thank you very much. Several video games take up to 100 GB already, not long and they will take up to 1 TB and more. Install a few games, and you got half of that 50TB drive full.

    I don't think HDDs will ever disappear for good. I have a 4 TB and 2 TB HDD. I can't imagine the cost of those in SSDs, plus there's no need to have that kind of speed for file storage. The OS and applications that are installed though, definitely take advantage of the higher read/write speeds of SSDs.

    SSD are 1TB, great for putting your OS, apps and games on them ... HD are 16TB, great for your big video files, backups and longterm storage needs ... good to have both, if possible.

  • Super Man

    I refuse to buy ANY Seagate drives... In 15 years I have had about 20 different HDD's in various PC's and in that time I have only had 4 drive failures, and in 15 years I have only owned 4 Seagate drives... I have not had a single Seagate drive last more than 3 years, 2 lasted 3 years, 1 lasted 3 months and the last was about 2 years. Yes they were all HDD's and I haven't had a Segate SSD but I don't plan to have one in the future anyway. Most of my other drives have been WD drives. In 15 years I have not had a single WD drive fail.
