    BitLocker effect on performance ?

    As one who is actually using BitLocker as we speak; there's virtually very little, in any a performance hit. In fact I'm also gaming on this system and currently playing Division 2 at very high settings. See system specs.

    If you want to use BitLocker, there's no worry it's going to bog your system down. None.

    One warning though... DO NOT LOSE OF FORGET YOUR KEY!!! If you do that, you'll have to wipe the drive. Speaking on experience here!

    And you're always going to find a negative on the net; just as I can find "proof" on the net that the earth is flat. Take thing with a grain of salt and realize benchmarks do not always equate to real word performance.

    Good luck.
