The OCZ Synapse Series integrates the benefits of SSD performance and HDD capacity with Dataplex™ caching software to dynamically manage the use of both SSD and HDD for superior overall storage performance. This combination creates an environment where the most frequently used "hot" data stays on the ultra-fast SSD, while the "cold" data remains on the larger capacity HDD (sold separately). Advanced caching algorithms learn user behavior and adapt storage policies to ensure optimal performance for each individual user, maximizing productivity for the most demanded programs and applications. Synapse Series integrates seamlessly within any modern PC platform, ensuring optimal compatibility along with performance gains.
