New Machine Intelligent technology that increases performance and extends the life of QLC flash.
Until now, performance SSDs sacrificed capacities in order to maintain affordable pricing. By blending the best of all worlds, MiDrive delivers performance, plus the capacity you require to save your valuable information, and perhaps best of all, at a competitive price point.
Finally, QLC that will outlast your notebook. Your SSD will stay young longer, and deliver consistent performance over the life of your drive. Machine intelligence maximizes the use of SLC, which has 30X the write endurance of QLC, and minimizes write amplification prevalent with caching solutions, thereby reducing writes to the QLC.
MiDrive blends SLC with QLC on a single controller SSD. Unlike competing QLC implementations that use a progressively smaller portion of the flash as a cache, MiDrive stores your active data in fixed size true SLC.
Machine Intelligence monitors your usage and remaps heavy write traffic to the SLC, while data that is infrequently accessed remains on the QLC. Rather than using the highest performing flash as temporary storage (i.e. a cache), MiDrive uses performance flash the way it is intended to be used – as Primary Storage!
