Improving Estimation Speed for DSGE

Hello guys,

I recently put together an Intel I7 3,4 Ghz, 8 GB Ram and 64 GB SSD. I built it with estimating DSGE models in mind .
Has anyone noticed an increase in estimation speed when running Matlab + Dynare from an SSD instead of a HDD? Opinions seem to be divergent on the net (at least for solely using Matlab).

Thanks !

I can’t write in my code 2^t where t is the time. How can I write time in power?

You can’t. Your model would not be stationary.
