The MQ01ABFH lineup is the next generation of SSHDs in the slim 7mm z-height from Toshiba, coming in both 320GB and 500GB capacities.
These drives feature a generous 32MB of DRAM cache, assisted by a full 8GB of 19nm MLC NAND from Toshiba. As with most drives aimed at thin computing, the ABFH lineup spins its platters at 5400RPM.
As the Hybrid drive market begins to heat up, consumers are taking advantage of the additional performance of SSHDs without the sacrifice of capacity. With Seagate launching its flagship Laptop Thin SSHD, and WD jumping onboard with their OEM-only model it was only a matter of time before Toshiba jumped in leveraging their extensive knowledge of NAND flash memory and caching solutions.
