Seagate Desktop SSHD 7200RPM 2TB SATA 600 3.5" 64MB HYBRID 8GB SSD
Stock Status: Available.

Condition: Brand New

The Seagate SSHD range of drives are hybrid hard drives and solid state disk drives. The SSD is used to cache files that, based on past usage, the drive estimates will be accessed frequently, allowing very fast access to frequently used files.

The benefits to read speed can be substantial, but do depend on usage. A user who only boots one OS, and runs the same applications on a regular basis will see speeds very close those of a full SSD when booting and loading applications. However a user who usually accesses a wide range of data - perhaps through regularly dual booting multiple operating systems and running a wide range of applications - will be accessing much of the data from the standard 7200RPM hard drive, and will see much less benefit.

It is also worth noting that the benefits will not be seen until the SSD has cached regularly used files - so it will take a period of normal use before the benefits are seen.

This is the 2TB version of this drive, with 64MB of volatile cache and an 8GB SSD.
