Storage comes courtesy of a 508GB hybrid HDD
- you get 500GB of HDD
The hybrid HDD
leverages the benefits of ample data storage capacity with high-speed processing and quick OS startup that flash memory enables.
The U840 uses a standard processor but the hybrid HDD
makes it slower than SSD Ultrabooks.
Bernard shares our vision of the unique and timely opportunity for our company to participate in the rapidly growing worldwide demand for advanced storage solutions to meet the flood of consumer and enterprise products requiring the use of magnetic and Flash media in Hybrid HDD
, SSD and HDD sub-systems -- and where Link_A_Media is one of only three worldwide suppliers able to address this entire market," said Dr.
Equipped with the latest high-performance Intel Core i7-4900MQ vPro Processor and cutting-edge NVIDIA Kepler generation Quadro graphics, in addition to a hybrid HDD
for high-speed booting and fast processing, the CELSIUS H730 enables an even higher performance work environment.
Our technology leadership for both magnetic and MLC Flash media uniquely positions us to address the emerging SoC needs of our HDD, SSD and Hybrid HDD
The new UltrabookO also boasts enhanced levels of computing performance, with on-board features such as the latest 4th-Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4200U Processor, as well as a 500GB hybrid HDD
that enables quick startup for the OS as well as ample storage capacity for data.
Fast, capacious, and economical hybrid HDD
and NAND flash storage solutions like the Momentus[R] XT drive will be found in roughly 25 percent of all new PCs shipped in 2015.
Forecasts for the hybrid HDD
market to grow to 600 million units by 2016 to account for $34 billion in revenues
Prior approaches, including the Hybrid HDD
and Intel's Turbo Memory or Robson failed due to faulty software support, an issue that is being addressed by Intel with the company's new Braidwood technology.
Test results showed great potential for hybrid HDD
technology, but should we expect hybrid drives to outperform SSDs or traditional HDDs?
