Intel Z68 的 Smart Response 技术,说穿了,就像 Seagate Momentus XT(Hybrid HDD)的 Intel 版,技嘉是台湾首家推出搭载 Smart Response 技术主板的厂商,这块主机版型号为 GA-Z68XP-UD3-iSSD(只是不知道会到rev多少版),在 Computex 现场也有展示。

Smart Response 简单说就是把插在主板的 SSD 模块当硬盘的快取(想到好几年前的 Turbo Memory,也是类似效果),好提升机械式硬盘的表现,笔者在威刚摊位也有看到他们家 mSATA SSD 模块,不过现场人员表示,此模块目前并没有零售,而是走 Bundle 路线,至于跟哪家厂商搭售,自然就是那几家搭载 Smart Response 的 Z68 主板厂商。

Gigabyte is the first manufacturer from Taiwan to incorporate the new Intel Smart Response technology into their new line of motherboards called the GA-Z68XP-UD3-iSSD. We got a fresh look at Computex this year.

Smart response is like the motherboard version of the Seagate Momentus XT hybrid HDD. Simply put, it's got an SSD module on the board to serve as cache for hard drives (this reminds us of Turbo Memory from years ago) to boost the performance of mechanical hard drives. We just saw an mSATA SSD module at the Apacer booth but that particular module will not hit the retail market. Instead, it is bundled to whichever motherboard that comes equipped with the Smart Response Z68 technology.

More close-ups after the break.
