How do SSDs & HDDs impact rendering?

The type of drives you use play a big part in your video performance, but is that true across all the pieces of the video workflow?

Having SSDs instead of HDDs can have a big impact on how fast your files load.  SSDs, which don't have any moving parts, are much faster than HDDs which require a spinning disk and a platter that must read the magnetic data off of the drive.

While SSDs stand head and shoulders above HDDs for their speed and durability they don't have a noticeable impact on rendering performance. The bulk of rendering performance is dependent on the GPU & Processors in your system.
