Hi guys.
I am reflecting interesting question. But I do not have informations and also SSD.

I wanna know how fast is it to download and verify full blockchain under our standard client.
I know that it takes time in days to do so with normal disc. But how good is SSD?

So, what is your experience?

Under Windows 7 on a Crucial M4 I think it was well under 10 hours from start to finish, as opposed to a 7200RPM Disc where it can stretch up to 36 in my experience.

The main problem with downloading the blockchain is not so much just the speed of the disk but a combination of bandwidth, CPU and I/O (and using a slower CPU such as on a typical laptop it is this that is the bottleneck).

That being said of course an SSD should improve the I/O side significantly.

With CIYAM anyone can create 100% generated C++ web applications in literally minutes.

To reduce the load on your SSD (or any mechanical drive) you could use a ramdisk for the initial download since there will be tons of I/O.

Took about a day to download on my SSD.
Thought it'd take much longer.

Everytime it took me 40 hours to download the entire blockchain to my destop pc. It's very boring.

Yea, ramdisk with torrent = win for the initial.

Until version 0.8 arrives (very fast!), you may use the Bitcoin blockchain torrent to speed the big first part of your download.

Edit: heh, pekv2 and I posted at the same time, it seems.
