OCZ is feeling quite experimental these days as it has announced a hybrid RevoDrive. Take the new RevoDrive 3 and use it as a cache in front of a 2.5" HDD (either 500GB or 1TB capacity) and you've got the RevoDrive Hybrid.

I'm not particularly interesting in the PCIe version of this but I do see some potential if OCZ were able to cram all of this into a standard SATA form factor. With the advent of Intel SRT however, I believe the time for hybrid SSD/HDD solutions may be limited. With Ivy Bridge next year nearly all new PCs will support SSD caching.

    why is there such a big thing being made out of it, like its a new mainstream technology?

    its just a patch over till solid state prices hit mass consumer level so we can dump the old mech drives and is only going to appeal to a limited segment of people (and some idiots) until then

    Anyone every watch Invader Zim? OCZ is really reminding me of the fusion episode where Zim was trying to "fuse" objects together by taping them to eachother. Given the assortment of configurations OCZ is preparing to offer, it made me chuckle.
