Today's PCs must meet increasingly strong demands for storage capacities
that can handle multiple HD videos and other data-rich sources, and
deliver read/write speeds that support excellent performance. Toshiba's
MQ01ABDH hybrid drive integrates NAND flash memory with a hard drive to
make full use of the large capacity of the HDD and the fast data access
speeds of the NAND. It also features self-learning caching algorithms
that optimize performance by learning the system user's data access
patterns. The Visionary Award was presented in recognition of Toshiba's
innovative approach and the advanced technologies the company brought to
the hybrid drive.
Shipments of the MQ01ABDH series started in autumn 2012 for OEM
customers and notebook PCs with the drive are already in the market.
Toshiba expects hybrid drives to account for about half of all 2.5-inch
storage products shipped for the notebook PC market in fiscal year 2015.
Toshiba is now developing next generation hybrid drives and will
continue to promote advances in its storage products business, pursuing
development of solutions offering higher capacities and even better
levels of performance.
