So I've been doing research on different SSDs and which one I should use as for my PC, the SSD will be the main storage, no HDD. I've found that more expensive SSDs have caches, and I was wondering what caches are, as I've been trying to find out what they are but the only things I've found on them make absolutely no sense to me.
For example, I've been comparing the SanDisk SSD Plus (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/x28H99/sandisk-ssd-plus-480gb-25-solid-state-drive-sdssda-480g-g26) the Kingston A400 (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/WGZ2FT/kingston-a400-480gb-25-solid-state-drive-sa400s37480g) and the Crucial MX500 (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/ft8j4D/crucial-mx500-500gb-25-solid-state-drive-ct500mx500ssd1) and while comparing, found out the MX500 has a 512MB cache while the others do not. Is there a Crucial (HAH! Pun intended.) difference?
