Hi, I am buying a new laptop for using ansys workbench and fluent.
I just graduated from Mechanical Engineering departmant. Right now I am trying to learn these programs. ( I learned basics from school)
This is the laptop I decided to buy :

Intel® Alder Lake Core™ i7-12700H 14C/20T; 24MB L3; E-CORE Max 3.50GHZ P-CORE Max 4.7GHZ;45W ;10nm S

nVIDIA® GeForce® RTX3050 TI Max-Performance 4GB GDDR6 128-Bit DX12

RAM : 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 1.2V 3200MHz SODIMM

SSD : 500GB CRUCIAL P2 PCIe M.2 2280 PCIe 3.0 x4 (Read 3200MB/S Write 940 MB/S)

My question is here; should I change the SSD to this :

500 GB Crucial SSD P5 PLUS M.2 SSD PCle 4.0x4 (Read 6600MB/s Write 4000MB/s)

Is it really important reading and writing ? If I change the SSD with these higher writing and reading quality, How much my pc's performance will improve ?

Thank you.

Hi and welcome,

It is unlikely that you will notice any improvement in terms of SSD, unless you are actually writing to disk frequently (and writing large files). In most simulations that will not be an issue. The faster SSD may in fact generate more heat, which of course is problematic in a laptop.
