Toshiba announces slimmer 7mm solid  state hybrid drive

Toshiba announces the slim, 7mm
MQ01ABF solid state hybrid drive
(SSHD) series. Equipped with Toshiba’s
NAND flash and available in 500GB and
320GB capacities, the MQ01ABFH series
is the first Toshiba SSHD drive family in
7 mm. The series continues Toshiba’s
legacy of providing world-class storage
products, and offers customers a
complete lineup of 2.5in solid state
hybrid drives with the previously
announced 1TB and 750GB MQ01ABDH
series 9.5mm SSHDs for ultrathin and
thin and light notebook PCs,
multimedia and gaming applications,
and traditional laptop PCs.
Drawing upon its knowledge and
experience in NAND flash, Toshiba
optimized the NAND flash performance
into a tiered-storage approach that uses
the speed of the DRAM and NAND
components with the high-capacity of
rotating media. Th e SSHD delivers
SSD-like performance without
dependence on external drivers or
assistance from the host system. Th e PC
Mark Vantage Score, the established
industry method for measuring SSHD
read/write performance and
responsiveness, for the MQ01ABFH
series is approximately 20,000,
surpassing the 16,000 industry standard
The MQ01ABFH series underwent
multiple performance and compatibility
tests with a variety of host PCs,
including the PC Mark Vantage test.
Testing for compatibility on variety PC
systems including high-end notebook
PCs, thin and light, and ultrathin, the
drive proved compatible with nearly
200 PC systems.
Similar to Toshiba’s other SSHD
offerings; the 7mm model uses
self-learning algorithms to optimize
performance based on users’ data access
patterns which can enhance their
computing experience. Th e self-learning,
caching algorithms manage what data is
stored in the NAND flash storage for the
fastest responsiveness, as well as how the
data in the drive is updated based on
intelligent access pattern learning. In
addition, Toshiba’s MQ01ABFH series
boasts superior power consumption and
operational shock levels. Toshiba’s new
500GB1 MQ01ABF050H model and
320GB MQ01ABF032H model will be
featured in various notebook PCs.
Samples are already available.
