Rate this Entry
SSD/HDD hybrid storage setups are apparently gaining ground as OCZ has decided to make a solid state drive line that's specifically optimized for caching applications. Better yet, these SSDs come bundled with the Dataplex cache software which enable SSD/HDD setups in any SATA-equipped PC.
Called Synapse Cache, OCZ's new drives have a 2.5-inch form factor, a SATA 6.0 Gbps interface, MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash memory chips, a MTBF of 2 million hours, TRIM support, and deliver read/write speeds of up to 550/490 MB/s (for the 64GB model) and 550/510 MB/s (128GB).
"The industry has shown that it craves the performance advantages that SSDs provide, however, many users still value the high capacities associated with HDDs," said Tobias Brinkmann, Director of Product Management, OCZ Technology Group. "We see the Synapse Cache SSDs integrated with Dataplex software as a big win for a large number of customers who value SSD performance but still require HDD capacity. We are proud to be the first to offer this no-compromise approach to enabling high-performance and high-capacity storage for virtually any PC platform."
The Synapse Cache SSDs are backed by a three-year warranty and are supposed to be shipping.
