Following Seagate's announcement of its plans to phase out its 7,200RPM mobile HDDs by end of this year, the company has now announced availability of its third gen SSHD products, which features the Seagate Laptop SSHD, 7mm-high Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD designed for the thinnest and lightest laptops, and the all-new Seagate Desktop SSHD, the line of drives aims to deliver blazing-fast performance and high-capacity at an affordable price.
Boasting SSD-like speed and hard disk drive capacity, the new Seagate Laptop and Laptop Thin SSHDs offers storage performance up to 40% faster than previous generations, and can add as much as 30 percent to total system performance – regardless of the processor inside the system. Seagate SSHD technology is up to 5 times faster than a standard 5,400RPM notebook hard drive. Boot a laptop in less than 10 seconds with the powerful combination of Windows 8 and SSHD technology.
With a massive 1TB of capacity available, the Laptop SSHD provides the space needed to download, store and stream rich media content such as gaming or high-definition video without sacrificing performance or responsiveness. And with a 500GB option measuring only 7mm-high, the Laptop Thin SSHD can be incorporated into most ultra-thin, ultra-sleek laptop systems.
With the Seagate Desktop SSHD, users can now experience SSD-like performance while enjoying the capacity of a desktop hard drive — all at a fraction of what a similar size SSD costs. The Desktop SSHD is capable of performing up to 4 times faster than other desktop HDD-based storage alternatives.
Using Seagate’s own breakthrough Adaptive Memory technology, to identify and store only the most critical data a system needs to go fast, the Desktop SSHD serves up high-performance without a high price tag.
The Seagate Desktop SSHD features up to 2TB of massive capacity and 8GB of NAND Flash making it ideal for accelerating the most commonly used PC applications and delivering extreme desktop performance with all the storage capacity needed for any computing scenario.
