GPT vs MBR on SSD: Which is Faster and Better?

When it comes to choosing between GPT and MBR for SSDs, GPT is the most logical choice. GPT offers several advantages over MBR, such as unlimited partitions, higher speed, and huge storage capacities. Plus, if you use a third-party application, no data loss occurs during the conversion from GPT to MBR or MBR to GPT. An MBR disk can contain up to four main partitions, while a GPT disk supports up to 128 main partitions in Windows. So if you need more partitions, GPT is the way to go.

Fortunately, modern motherboards support both legacy boot and UEFI boot. This means you can enable the CSM (compatibility support module) in the BIOS if you want to boot Windows from an MBR disk or a GPT disk. Alternatively, you can enable UEFI when you want to boot from a GPT disk or enable the old BIOS if you plan to boot from an MBR disk. This provides redundancy to the GPT scheme, which can be used as a backup if the main GPT is damaged or fails. In conclusion, GPT is faster and better than MBR on SSDs.
