The OCZ Synapse is one of those “outside the box” ideas that actually works surprisingly well in the real world. It may not be perfect and certainly isn’t the right fit for everyone but in return for using mainly wasted idle CPU cycles,...

s No, it’s not magic. The Synapse works, and it works very well. In fact, it performed quite beyond my expectations, based on experience with smaller SSDs and Z68 caching, I didn’t quite expect the noticeably large leap in performance we saw...

We can sit here and say the drive is fast and it is, but then again what SSD isn’t. What makes this drive the drive that is it is the caching system. There is no easier way to get the same or greater than SSD performance from a mechanical drive....

You know I honestly was a little skeptical about these supposed caching drives. I mean I knew what they were supposed to do but I did not expect to see such a performance increase. I mean using the hybrid solution is just like using a normal solid...

So far, a lot of the solid state drives on the market have been targeted towards the performance enthusiast crowd. However, these drives can cost several hundred dollars, and not everyone wishes to put that much money into one part. OCZ's Synapse...

Most casual users and gamers will rightfully be excited about OCZ’s Synapse; the caching works very well even after a single run and will not be easily evicted from the cache, especially after repeated use. Although it is an idea quite similar to...

OCZ’s Synapse Cache solid state drives work quite well at offering a relatively important performance increase to non-Z68 motherboards. Users will see quicker program load and execution thanks to its fast caching feature. This is also achieved...

I always felt that SSD caching solutions should have come a long time ago since the entire concept is not really new and certainly not something hard to achieve especially when there are already quite a few SAS/SATA cards out there that...

you can pick up the OCZ Synapse 64GB SATA3 SSD, it's armed with a SandForce 2281 controller and the means to use it, as alongside the SSD you get to use the very same cache software layer the RevoDrive Hybrid uses, Dataplex. A cache in combination...

Remember the RevoDrive Hybrid we reviewed a few weeks back? We called it "quite possibly a glimpse at the future of high-speed, high-capacity storage", but added that its current limitations made it difficult to recommend.The idea of caching...

OCZ set out to broaden their SSD caching options with the Synapse SSD and boy did they deliver. Paired up with the included Dataplex software and a user's own high capacity hard drive, the end results are just plain sick, fly, da bomb, pimp, baller...

zur OCZ Synapse zu ziehen, bedarf der Beachtung mehrerer Aspekte. Beschränkt man dieses Flash-Laufwerk lediglich auf die Leistungsdaten, so wird jeder schnell sehen, dass die Performance-Krone für das Testmuster unerreichbar ist. Schwenkt man...
