SilverStone Makes HDDBoost Hybrid Drive

Here's a cool one. SilverStone has put together a very different sort of hard drive. It is called the HDDBoost (SlashGear) and (the company claims) it can boost HDD performance by up to 70%. It allows users to connect any 2.5" SSD to any 3.5" HDD. The drive creates a mirror of the front end data of the HDD and puts it on the SSD, which allows your computer to access those files much faster.

The best part about this drive? No special software is required. Just plug the drives in and the hardware takes care of everything automatically. The total price is around $50, although the device is only available in Japan right now. That should change if this thing really does work as advertised. It sounds like the perfect stop-gap between HDDs and SSDs.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
