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.
