The MyDigitalSSD DDRII Super Cache mSATA 32GB is a niche product now, but the niche will grow rapidly over the next few months.
Once Intel launches everything 77 Series, (Ivy Bridge) notebooks, desktops, ultrabooks and other products with built in Smart Response Technology, the demand for mSATA and 2.5" cache drives will grow. MyDigital is once again on the leading edge of technology. The only problem is we have this drive now and there are very few products available that we can use it with.
If you are someone with an empty mSATA slot in your notebook today then things are different. You can use the Super Cache today as either a cache drive (if you have a Z86 chipset or access to Dataplex software) or as a small boot drive. We know MyDigitalSSD is in talks with NVELO, trying to get Dataplex software as an add-on. That deal isn't finalized at the time of writing. The Super Cache would be complimented well with Dataplex, so hopefully that pans out for some of the notebook users. Once Ivy Bridge comes out there isn't much of a reason for users to pay for Dataplex though as Smart Response Technology is free and built into the chipset.
Aside from the speed and what it can do for your user experience, the best part about the DDRII Super Cache is the price. At just under $60 this 32GB drive with advanced Toshiba Toggle Mode NAND is quite the bargain. The only thing we could really ask for at this point is for MyDigitalSSD to release larger sizes for even more cache capacity, an area where Intel's 20GB SRT drive lacked.
