The idea of using an SSD
as a caching tool--placing more frequently-used files on the SSD and leaving the rest on a slower storage drive--is a great one, but many users have found that setting up the SSD cache can be tricky. Crucial
’s new Adrenaline Solid State Cache Solution offers a slightly more elegant way of configuring such a setup; it includes a 50GB m4 SSD, a 3.5" adapter bracket, and software. According to Crucial, all one must do is connect the SSD to the motherboard and install and run the software; no fuss, no muss. From then on, the software does its thing automatically.
Equipped with a three year warranty, the Adrenaline Solid State Cache Solution will be available this quarter.
