Hitachi-LG Data Storage fixes optical drive with SSD assist to use one SATA port

Comments(0)Hitachi-LG Data Storage has updated the hybrid optical/SSD drive it announced earlier this year (How does a hybrid SSD/optical drive make sense?) by integrating the SSD with the optical drive controller and making both the optical and solid-state drives accessible through one 6Gbps SATA III port. The first-generation drive introduced earlier this year at the Computex electronics show in Taipei was essentially an SSD tacked onto and stuffed into the same case as an optical disc drive. The result was two separate drives, each with its own SATA port. The new drive fully integrates the optical drive and SSD onto one circuit board that share a common 6Gbps SATA III connector.
