OCZ has released its RevoDrive Hybrid PCIe storage solution, with an MSRP of $499.99 US Dollars.

Combining a 100GB SSD and 1TB HDD, the solution takes advantage of Dataplex caching software to dynamically manage the performance and usage of both components. Frequently-used data is accommodated on the SSD unit, whilst other data is taken care of by the high-capacity traditional storage drive. This is enhanced, so we're told, thanks to caching algorithms which ensure optimal performance based upon individual usage patterns.



Breaking though the constraints of SATA connectivity, OCZ throws around bandwidth figures of up to 910MB/s, and 4KB random write operations per second, rated at up to 120,000 IOPS.

:surprised: :surprised: :eek:

$500 (so around £400-500…) for something that may - or may not - load “that piece” of data faster for you?

I don't get it…..if you cannot manage which drive your data is on, yet can afford this, you might as well just have a pure-SSD system.
how much would a 1tb ssd based system cost though?
Don't adapters exist that already do what this offers? For well, well under the cost of this even with a bigger SSD?

Pure SSD? A lot.

But a 100GB SSD (about £100 or a bit under, Kingston v+ 96GB), and a 1TB HD (what, £35). Total, around £135.
