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 SSD + HDD
  • Innovative integration improves system reliability and data integrity
  • No special software required; installs and works just like a typical hard drive

Seagate Adaptive Memory™ technology.

Seagate Adaptive Memory™ technology effectively identifies the most frequently-used data in your computer. This data is stored in the ultra-fast NAND flash memory which results in blazing fast boot times, and a super responsive experience where you wait less and do more. This technology is constantly working and adapting to way you work and access information.

Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD) Reliability.

Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD) Reliability.

A typical HDD depends on moving parts and spinning media. An SSD does not have moving parts, however it’s limited by how many times data can be written to it. So, separately, each technology can have a downside. Together, they complement each other nicely. An SSHD reads primarily from SSD memory, placing less wear and tear on the HDD. Writing is achieved primarily on the HDD, helping to reduce the write-cycle wear issue.
