Solid State Drive Technology Inside Your SSHD

SSHD technology uses the right amount of ultra-fast NAND flash (the same type used in SSDs) to increase system performance. Seagate Adaptive Memory technology effectively identifies the most frequently-used data and stores it in the NAND flash. The results give you greatly improved boot times, application loads and overall system responsiveness.

  • Eliminates the firmware complexity of system-level integration of SSD & HDD
  • Innovative integration improves system reliability and data integrity
  • No special software required; installs and works just like a typical hard drive
