EDGE Memory Announces New Boost Cache Solid State Drive

Affordable SSD upgrade that offers users the enhanced performance of an SSD while keeping the larger storage capacity benefits of their existing hard drive. 

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 17, 2012 - EDGE Memory, a leading U.S.-based supplier of memory and solid state drives, today announces the release of the EDGE Boost Cache SSD – 6Gb/s (SATA III) for Windows 7 users. The Boost Cache solid state drive (SSD) is the ideal upgrade for users seeking the enhanced performance of an SSD, but reluctant to give up the storage capacity of their existing hard disk drive (HDD). The Boost Cache SSD works with the existing HDD to dramatically increase system performance without compromising the ability to store large amounts of data. Users experience up to 50% faster boot times and substantial speed gains when browsing files and loading applications. As with all EDGE Boost SSDs, the Boost Cache features a best-in-class SandForce controller, five-year warranty, and a robust suite of features designed to enhance efficiency and increase the lifespan of the SSD.

“While SSDs have continued to grow in popularity, we talk to many customers who are still hesitant to upgrade due to higher cost or capacity concerns,” said Shane Taylor, Channel Sales Manager at EDGE Memory. “We are excited to offer our customers a simple and affordable SSD upgrade that gives them the best of both worlds.”

The Boost Cache SSD is easy to install and requires no transferring of files or programs. Users simply connect the Boost Cache SSD to their motherboard, install the provided Dataplex caching software and reboot. It’s that easy! The Dataplex software works in the background requiring no user maintenance or supervision. Frequently used data and applications are cached to the high-performance SSD automatically. Infrequently used data and applications remain on the original hard drive. The result is a faster, more efficient computing experience.

The Boost Cache SSD is available today in 50GB* and 100GB* capacities through select channel partners ( All Boost SSDs are made in the U.S.A. and TAA compliant.
