Sorry for the alphabet soup.
- I want to use software-based on-the-fly AES file encryption
- I will not use full disk encryption (only file and partition).
- This would be on an older Core 2 system, so there is no AES instruction set.
Will this render any SSD performance gains moot?
Edit: I know not to use an SSD that utilizes encryption as a wear-leveling mechanism (ie.: not a Sandforce controller)
