Seagate’s new Hybrid with a built in NAND flash memory drive should rock your socks off and give you the extra boost that is becoming standard nowadays. The name of this new Hard Drive by Seagate is called the Momentus XT drive. This is supposed to be the fasted 2.5” laptop HD ever created.
The idea of the drive is to integrate 7200rpm platters with 4 GB of SLN NAD flash, to give that extra boost to commonly used applications and software on the laptop/notebook. The “adaptive memory technology” allows files frequently accessed to be moved within the HD to the solid state memory for faster file access. So really this type of technology enables individual users to have their experience tailor made based of off their user preferences.
“We see the Momentus XT drive as a game changer, a product heralding a new generation of hard drives that combine SSD and HDD capabilities so that laptop users don’t have to make trade-offs on speed, cost or capacity,” said Dave Mosley, Seagate executive vice president of Sales, Marketing and Product Line Management.
My question is, where are these drives designed for the Desktop?
