Burst Speed for Hard Drives - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I learned from having a mediocre CPU a large "slow" HD and DDR333...
At the time DDR333 was the fastest and with a slow harddrive it helped out a lot.
Now combinations are limitless...but as long as you have components that are "uptodate"...then you can use other tweaking techniques to squeeze out he optimal performance.
No system is a bad system...simply untapped!!!

With the new invention of Hybrid Drives (A standard HDD with a ton of non-volitale memory.) burst rates will last much longer. Windows Vista will be able to use Hybrid HDDs and programs can take advantage of that memory on those drives to speed up data reads. The first models will have 128MB and 256MB buffer sizes. There is also a way to use a standard thumb drive in the same manner, although not as fast and has different pro's and con's. You can read up more on Hybrid Drives within these following links:

Robson will launch with Intel’s Santa Rosa notebook platforms in the first quarter of 2007.

VISTA will soon be taking advantage of the Flash chip..I need to get one at some point.

I'm done here...it has escalted beyond the original topic...
No need for me to see a future that is unproven...
