OCZ launch the Synapse Cache Series 2.5” SSD’s

/ 5 years ago

Yesterday saw the release of OCZ’s Synapse Cache Series 2.5” SSD’s optimized for caching applications and leverages Dataplex cache software to dynamically manage the Synapse SSD in conjunction with standard hard disk drives (HDD’s), to provide users with SSD-level performance across the entire capacity of the HDD.


The drives are 6GB/s SATA III devices that come in two capacities of 64GB and 128GB and come with a 3 year warranty and is bundled with a 3.5 inch mount adapter, they have low power consumption at 2.7W Active and 1.5W Idle.

The 64GB model has:

  • Max Read: up to 550 MB/s
  • Max Write: up to 490 MB/s
  • Random Write 4k: 75,000 IOPS

The 128GB model has:

  • Max Read: up to 550 MB/s
  • Max Write: up to 510 MB/s
  • Random Write 4k: 80,000 IOPS

The industry has shown that it craves the performance advantages that SSD’s provide, however, many users still value the high capacities associated with HDD’s, said Tobias Brinkmann, Director of Product Management, OCZ Technology Group. We see the Synapse Cache SSD’s integrated with Dataplex software as a big win for a large number of customers who value SSD performance but still require HDD capacity. We are proud to be the first to offer this no-compromise approach to enabling high-performance and high-capacity storage for virtually any PC platform.
