I would assume there has to be some speed improvement seeing as how SSD access is always faster than moving parts.

BTW, I had to chuckle at your sig. Looks like you're just about to get that ICCF IM title very soon, in which case we'll both be awarded our medals next year at Sydney Australia.

Also you probably shouldn't use "ouachita" as a user name any more. Many people still remember it from when you got banned on chess.com for cheating your way to #1 rank.

Wolff,
I asked all of my opponents at chess.com at the outset of each game whether or not they were using or would use an engine. If they didn't, I didn't; if they did, I did. I ascribe my ascension to #1 at chess.com as being more attributable to my own chess playing skills. That site had/has many dozens of players using engines while denying same.

Whether playing with or without engines, you haven't made it to #1 anywhere, have you? LOL
:P

If it's Ok with you, I'll keep ouachita here and elsewhere.
