External 256 SSD drive.
Jul 18, 2013

Recently brought up a new computer; Win 8, 64 bit, i7 quad @ 3.5 g w/16 g of ram and a 256 SSD internal.  Night and day different speed using LR5 and 30 meg raw files.  All picture and music files are external on LaCie HDDs via USB 2.0

What should I expect to happen to operating speeds if I moved the 89 g (+/-) of images to a LaCie 256 g external SSD used with a USB 3.0 connection?

Anyway to quantify or anticipate (roughly) the change in operating speed I would gain?

Thanks in advance.
