Flash Memory Summit 2013 - Seagate's David Burkes took some time yesterday to show off a demo of how SSDs and SSHD can remove the normal HDD bottleneck from notebooks. He went on to detail how the addition of NAND into the storage media greatly improves the performance one can expect from their laptop.

 

 

For those who do not know, SSHD technology is where SSD technology meets HDD technology and the two merge to create what is called a hybrid drive.
