Give Your Hard Drive what it’s Been Missing…Per formance
The new Synapse
Series is optimized for caching applications and integrates Dataplex™ cache software to dynamically manage the Synapse SSD in
conjunction with standard hard disk drives (HDDs), to provide users with SSD-level performance across the entire capacity of the
HDD. The OCZ Synapse Series leverages the latest and most advanced hardware and software technology to deliver superior
storage performance without sacrificing HDD capacity. For users craving the performance advantages of SSDs combined with the
high capacities associated with HDDs, OCZ offers the first no-compromise approach to enabling high-performance and highcapacity storage for virtually any PC platform.

Keep the capacity. Let go of the Lag.
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.
