"Another feature that the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X has is the Store MI Technology. It’s a really good feature for the processor since it combines great speed and a huge capacity which isn’t seen in other similar devices. AMD puts these elements together in a single drive so you can easily move all the data that you regularly access to your SSD – this is where you’ll get the best of both worlds: the responsiveness and receptivity of an SSD plus the capacity of a hard disk at an affordable price. This alone makes us give a thumbs-up for the Ryzen 7 2700X."
"So hopefully now you have a better idea what StoreMI is all about. For Ryzen and Threadripper owners, this is an interesting area where AMD has actually added value to a purchase long after some of you may have built your system. So the performance numbers really speak for themselves, StoreMI can offer a new way of dealing with your storage and while AMD provided the hard drive and SATA based SSD for this test, there are some other unique things you can do. If you want you could actually run two SSDs. Pairing an Intel Optane drive or an NVMe SSD for the fast drive along with another higher capacity SSD could give you the performance of a much more expensive high capacity NVMe at a cheaper price."
"I have to say that the AMD StoreMI software was quite impressive, the team at Enmotus did a very fine job of putting it together. Aside from the improved benchmark results, the whole system worked more smoothly. Boot time improved significantly, the desktop was more responsive, no waiting for windows to open while the HDD was searching, which is how it ran prior to using StoreMI. If you’re one of those individuals still using a large HDD for storage, your Operating System or both this software will definitely make life easier for you. As I mentioned earlier it’s free for anyone running a 400 series chipset which, to me, makes it hard not to take advantage of the benefits it has to offer. A big thumbs up and Overclockers Approved!"
"I can say this for StoreMI, it’s a cool technology and something I want to see AMD build on. StoreMI also something I think doesn’t just achieve parity with Intel’s SRT, but flat out beats it. There is simply no comparison between the two. AMD\'s approach is the most innovative I\'ve seen out of so called "SSD caching" software."
