Also, if you're curious about Intel's latest 313 Series drives
, the following info from Intel should give you a bit of background:
Optimize PC responsiveness with the Intel® SSD 313 Series caching solution featuring Intel® Smart Response Technology, a feature which enables storage I/O caching by moving frequently used blocks of disk information to an SSD - providing dramatically faster access to user data than the hard disk alone can provide. The end result: your PC can take full advantage of the hard drive capacity and receive a boost in boot times and application launches for faster overall system responsiveness similar to that of an SSD-only system. And because SSDs reduce spinning up of your hard drive, the Intel SSD 313 Series delivers high performance with low power. With powerful Native Command Queuing that enables up to 32 concurrent operations and proven Intel architecture, the Intel SSD 313 Series drastically outperforms traditional hard disk drives.
