Storage can be a factor that limits performance in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software since the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software reads source files and constraints and reads/writes to the database. For best results, Intel® recommends the following to ensure consistent system performance:
- Downloading all the necessary files from the network.
- Completing the compilation process using local disks.
- Uploading the finished results back to the network by avoiding storage latency (varies on each system).
Intel® recommends prioritizing the selection of the fastest affordable SSD drive for your storage needs. Opting for an SSD over traditional disk drives significantly enhances load and save times and greatly improves overall operating system performance. SSDs offer superior speed and responsiveness, making them an excellent choice to ensure the best performance experience when using the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software.
