Welcome to Myceâ€™s review of the Toshiba MQ01ABD100H 1000GB Solid State Hybrid Drive (â€˜SSHDâ€™) and the very latest generation, MQ01ABF050H 500GB SSHD, both of which have only recently become available for review by European Reviewers.
At the heart of the SSHD value proposition is the idea of marrying the low cost per Gigabyte of a traditional rotating magnetic disk (HDD) with the speed of NAND Flash Memory to deliver an SSD type user experience. The key to success is a caching algorithm that intelligently places a specific userâ€™s most frequently accessed data in NAND memory so that a higher proportion of data access is performed at SSD like speeds.
Both SSHDs have 8Gb of 32nm SLC NAND memory. So the opportunity for storing data on NAND is limited, and the algorithm is going to have to be very clever in the way it learns about a specific userâ€™s most frequently accessed data.
Toshiba’s SSHDs prove to be convincing.
The other opportunity for an SSHD is to write to the NAND and defer the writing of data to the magnetic disk, thereby improving the user experience in writing as well as reading data.
