Even though solid state drives have come down significantly in price over the past year, cache drives are still quite popular with those who want to enjoy the performance gains an SSD has to offer, without a large expense. They can also be added to existing mechanical hard drive systems to boost performance.

These drives use custom software which has an advantage over Intel’s Smart Response Technology as they can be used with pretty much any platform, rather than being restricted to Z68 and Z77.
