The race just doesnt seem to be slowing in the world of SSDs these days. Just when we wonder if Intel has finished with their complement of SSD releases, a new 20GB slc SSD, codenamed Larson Creek, is released to pair up with new Z68 motherboards.
New Z68 motherboard contain a new ssd caching ability known as Smart Response Technology which allows the speed of the SSD and the capacity of the HDD.
SSDs as high as 64GB can be used, however, Intel is the only to release in the slc form factor.
With the prices of SSDs having dropped significantly over the past few years, the success of Smart Response is yet to be seen but we have to give credit for yet another option for performance enhancement being offered to the consumer.
