OCZ Synapse Cache 64GB SSD review

1. Features

Today we have in our labs an SSD developed by OCZ, designed for accelerating your PC by taking advantage the ultra-fast read and write features of flash memory. Designed to work in conjunction with your standard hard disk drives (HDDs), the Synapse SSD is optimized for caching applications and files that you are frequently using in your daily tasks and provide you with SSD-level performance across the entire capacity of the HDD.

The basic advantage of the Synapse SSD is that it can work in any Windows 7 PC system without any demanding hardware requirements. The "caching" operation is controlled by a software and not your PC's hardware i.e. chipset, as you need in other caching solutions such as Intel's RST.

The OCZ Synapse Series integrates the Dataplex caching software to dynamically manage the use of both SSD and HDD. This combination creates an environment where the most frequently used "hot" data stays on the ultra-fast SSD, while the "cold" data remains on your larger capacity HDD.
