Fast access to the files and applications you use most
Intel® Smart Response Technology is a feature of Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) that enables either a dual drive—lower-cost, small-capacity SSD used in conjunction with a low-cost, high-capacity hard disk drive (HDD)—or a solid state hybrid drive (SSHD) to provide a high-performance, cost-effective storage solution.
For dual drive storage solutions, Intel Smart Response Technology recognizes and automatically stores your most frequently used applications and data into the SSD, while giving you full access to the large storage capacity of an HDD. You can create, work, and play faster than ever before without paying more for a larger SSD to store your entire digital library.
SSHDs are a new type of HDD with a built-in high performance SSD. Intel Smart Response Technology boosts SSHD performance by informing the drive which data you use the most so it can store it into the built-in SSD.
