A Quick Overview Of How Our Customers Will Benefit From Ivy Bridge

A quick overview of how customers will benefit from using an Ivy Bridge CPU & Board and SSD:

Smart Response Technology – Uses an SSD to cache/store frequently used data.  Provides access speeds to those files faster than a standard HDD.  Windows needs to be installed on a standard hard drive.  A smaller SSD can be used for cache drive.  A way to save the customer money with a smaller SSD but still have faster file access speeds.  The faster speeds lead to noticeable system responsiveness and less time wasted waiting for applications.

Rapid Start Technology – Uses an SSD to transfer from RAM into storage for Sleep/Hibernation.  Enables a 5-8 second ready to go from hibernate and/or sleep.  This can be installed on a cache drive like Smart Response or on a boot SSD (a partition needs be created the size of installed RAM).  Increases user productivity and improves energy savings as users would use sleep/hibernation more as the wait time is gone.

Smart Connect Technology – Apps can still sync with the cloud/network while in sleep.  Requires an SSD and Rapid Start.

In General:

Smart Response and Rapid Start can be installed on a smaller SSD.  60GB or so with the main OS being on a larger standard HDD.

Rapid Start can be installed on a boot SSD.  Smart Response isn’t needed/possible (as the system is getting faster speed) when the boot drive is an SSD.
