hybrid device drive, such as the Seagate’s Momentus XT, combines flash storage & standard plate-based storage in a drive have been around for a long time. The flash memory is used to store commonly accessed data, such as the OS and sys files, while the hard drive is used to store up all static & other document data. This allows the hybrid drive to provide better performance with a large quantity of storage space at very lower cost.
Apple’s Fusion Drive combines 120 Gigabytes of solid state (flesh) storage and a standard platter hard drive with 1TB or 3TB data storage capacity. Apple says the OS and other applications will be installed on the (solid- state drive) flash memory part & other data, such as documents & media, stays on the hard disk drive part. Users can move applications & other files between the 2 parts of the drive to get better performance.
Apple claims that the new Fusion Drive will be much faster than a standard hard drive. The information of the new Hybrid drive are still sketchy. It’s a combination of SSD/HDD, with sensible tool to make best possible use of instrument efficiency.
