Seagate Momentus XT Version 2 Available Now James White February 16, 2012 Press Release Are you still on the fence about switching to a SSD as your primary system drive? Is the price still just barely out of your reach? Thinking about trying out one of the many cache ideas on the market? Well Seagate has decided to make all those decision a lot easier with the new Momentus XT 750 GB Hybrid Drive. The idea is obvious at this point so I will just go right to the specs. The new Momentus XT is a 2.5″ 7200 RPM 750 GB two platter HDD with 8 GB of SLC NAND flash memory. It will automatically track and cache 8 GB of your most accessed files to speed up subsequent uses of those files. This can translate into much faster boot times and faster load times on your favorite games or applications. The best part is there is no software to install, no strange RAID configurations, and no need to buy two separate drives. The Seagate Momentus XT SSHD is the only single solution SSD caching system. And since it is 100% self contained it will work with any computer, any operating system, and with any application. Currently retailing for $178.99, it’s in the same price range as similar high performance HDDs. If you are still not sure about switching over to an full SSD, this might just be the perfect middle ground for you. Share This With The World!
