The OCZ Synapse Series is optimized for caching applications to dynamically manage the Synapse SSD in conjunction with standard hard disk drives (HDDs), to provide users with SSD-level performance across the entire capacity of the HDD. The OCZ Synapse Series leverages the latest and most advanced hardware and software technology to deliver superior storage performance without sacrificing HDD capacity. For users craving the performance advantages of SSDs combined with the high capacities associated with HDDs, OCZ offers the first no-compromise approach to enabling high-performance and high-capacity storage for virtually any PC platform.

The OCZ Synapse Series integrates Dataplex™ caching software to dynamically manage the use of both SSD and HDD for superior overall storage performance. This combination creates an environment where the most frequently used "hot" data stays on the ultra-fast SSD, while the "cold" data remains on the larger capacity HDD (sold separately). Advanced caching algorithms learn user behavior and adapt storage policies to ensure optimal performance for each individual user, maximizing productivity for the most demanded programs and applications:

The SSD Advantage

Faster Performance
Faster Performance

SSD technology enables 100x greater throughput, quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.

Cost-Effective
More Bang for the Buck

When considering performance per dollar, SSDs are more cost-effective than their mechanical counterparts.

Greater Durability
Greater Durability

The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards is extremely durable, unlike HDDs and their rotating disks and seeking spindles.

Less Power
Energy Efficient

SSDs use significantly less power than hard drives, promoting a longer battery life in notebooks, less power consumption, and a greener computing environment.

Silente Operation
Silent Operation

With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC to eliminate distracting noise during gaming or entertainment.
