We heard about OCZ’s clever crossbreed a few months ago, but couldn’t be sure about pricing for this premium model. Turns out, it’s significantly less than we’d guessed: $499 for a 100GB SSD and 1TB HDD happily united on a single PCI Express card. Yup, that’s still a heck of a lot more than the $300 or so it’d cost to pick up a SandForce-controlled 120GB solid state beauty along with a separate 1TB SATA 6GB/s hard drive. The comparison isn’t entirely fair, though, because OCZ claims its combo boosts overall performance by caching both “hot” and “cold” data, which is automatically organized between the SSD and HDD, on a single card with up to 910MB/s bandwidth and 120,000 IOPS. Nevertheless, it’ll take some real-world benchmarking to determine whether the promised speed gain is worth our wages. More details in the PR after the break.
