Seagate Announces New Laptop and Desktop SSHDs (Solid State Hybrid Drives)

These drives, for those who do not know, are a combination of SSD technology bridged with a standard hard drive. 

The idea behind these drives is pretty simple: The drive will monitor what apps or data you use most, and then load that in the included SSD area of the drive thus allowing you FASTER access to the apps you use the more. At least, that' the theory.

A few days ago we reported that Seagate would stop selling 7200 RPM 2.5” hard drives by the end of the year. Now we know why. Seagate will continue to offer 5400 RPM 2.5” drives, but if you want more performance without diving into the performance/capacity tradeoffs of an SSD Seagate will offer you its 3rd generation solid state hybrid drive (SSHD).

Once sold under the Momentus XT brand, the 3rd gen hybrid drives will simply be sold under the SSHD moniker. As Seagate alluded to many times in the past, we’ll also be getting a 3.5” hybrid drive as well. The two families will simply be called the Seagate Laptop SSHD and Seagate Desktop SSHD.
