Scott what do you think of using Intel's Optane Technology paired with One of these instead of spending the money on a Nvme SSD.

I added it up and it'd be $132.99 for that drive plus a 32GB Intel Optane. Plus I'd get double the space with 1TB SSHD compared to getting a 500 GB Nvme SSD. Normally they are around $230 so a $100 savings.

I don't know if that's really worth it though because this pc would be for the wife and neither of us use much space on hard drives, so speed and responsiveness is more important. However I don't know how close in speed to a traditional Nvme ssd this setup would yield.

What do you think? Have you seen any comparison?.

It is only slightly faster than a standard HDD. An SSD would be about 4 or 5 times faster yet. I recommend using an SSD because it will perform much better and you said you don't need that much storage space. I only recommend hybrid drives if you can't find or afford an SSD with enough storage capacity to meet your needs. Scott.

Yes but what about with the Intel Optane "Ram" or cache?. Does that make a significant difference?.

It turns standard drives into "hybrid" drives. An SSD would be much better. Scott.
