Cache drives will start at $69 for 30GB

There's no question that solid-state drives (SSDs) have taken over the enthusiast and consumers markets. Many enthusiasts look to SSDs at least for a boot drive and many manufacturers are going "all SSD" when it comes to thin and light notebooks.
 
Corsair is pushing a different angle with its new line of Accelerator Series SSD Cache drives. The cache drives, available in 30GB, 45GB, and 60GB capacities, plug into a free SATA port and work with NVELO software to provide an immediate speed boost in a Windows environment. There is no direct involvement from the user in managing file storage on the device; the caching software handles it all.

 
Corsair says that users will see an immediate [up to] 5x boost in read/write speeds over an existing HDD in a system.
 
"It's ideal for consumers and enthusiasts who'd like to improve their PC's speed without investing the time and cost into a complete PC upgrade," said Thi La, Corsair's VP of Memory Products. There's no complex configuration involved, and their PC will work as it always has — just a lot quicker."
 
The Accelerator Series SSD Cache drives currently work in Windows 7 and will support the upcoming Windows 8 operating system when it is released. The 30GB, 45GB, and 60GB models will be priced at $69, $84, and $99 respectively.

SSD Cache with SSD as Boot?
By DTGuy on 1/11/2012 9:19:00 AM , Rating: 2
I currently have a 120GB SSD as my boot drive with 16GB or RAM. Will having this 'Accelerator Series SSD Cache drive' benefit my current config? I do have a 2TB RAID1 with apps and games on it, but my Intel X25 SSD is where most of my 'daily' apps are stored...Wondering....
