Today we are unboxing a rather small hard drive in terms of capacity as it is only 64GB. This drive is only 64GB because it is made to be a caching drive that is combined with your normal hard drive for improved performance. Since the release of the Z68 chipset from Intel we have been seeing these drives, but OCZ has their own software that enables this drive to become a caching drive on any PC system, not just an Intel Z68 system. Read on as we unboxing this drive and even open it up!

Information: The OCZ Synapse Series is optimized for caching applications to dynamically manage the Synapse SSD in conjunction with standard hard disk drives (HDDs), to provide users with SSD-level performance across the entire capacity of the HDD. The OCZ Synapse Series leverages the latest and most advanced hardware and software technology to deliver superior storage performance without sacrificing HDD capacity. For users craving the performance advantages of SSDs combined with the high capacities associated with HDDs, OCZ offers the first no-compromise approach to enabling high-performance and high-capacity storage for virtually any PC platform.
The OCZ Synapse Series integrates Dataplex™ caching software to dynamically manage the use of both SSD and HDD for superior overall storage performance. This combination creates an environment where the most frequently used “hot” data stays on the ultra-fast SSD, while the “cold” data remains on the larger capacity HDD (sold separately). Advanced caching algorithms learn user behavior and adapt storage policies to ensure optimal performance for each individual user, maximizing productivity for the most demanded programs and applications.
Synapse Series integrates seamlessly within any modern PC platform, ensuring optimal compatibility along with performance gains and comes backed by a 3-year warranty.
