Is it worth moving Media Cache and Database to a Thunderbolt attached SSD?

Just curious if it would be worth it? A 250GB SSD and enclosure could be had for maybe $175 and I wonder if there would be any worthwhile speedup in Premiere?

Hard to say -- you don't mention any other storage or where it's located.

Well, I'm running everything on a recent MBP with connections to a stack of G-RAIDs via Thunderbolt monitor. I'm not overly concerned about performance, but was just wondering if I added a Thunderbolt 3 attached SSD and used that as the media cache drive, would there be any significant performance benefit overall? I note this article which points out how often media cache items are accessed - https://www.digistor.com.au/the-latest/techblog-adobe-media-cache/

Just mildly curious.

What OTHER apications do you frequently use? I'm thinking about After Effects, which benefits a lot from a very fast and large cache.

Thanks for this - so it seems like it would indeed be helpful.

I almost never use AE, in truth.
