Seagate FireCuda Overview

Designed for gamers, creative professionals, and PC enthusiasts who are seeking higher performance without upgrading their desktop system to an SSD, the 1TB FireCuda 3.5" Internal Hybrid Drive from Seagate combines a 1TB storage capacity with an 8GB solid-state cache. While the solid-state cache isn't user accessible, copies of the most frequently used data are kept there, improving overall performance.

The FireCuda operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface and a 64MB DRAM cache, both of which help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained data transfer rate (OD read) of up to 210 MB/s, an average data read rate of up to 156 MB/s, and an average data rate from the solid-state cache of up to 190 MB/s. This 3.5" drive also features high levels of reliability, with 1 in 1014 non-recoverable read errors per bits read, 300,000 load/unload cycles, and an annualized failure rate (AFR) of <1%. This drive is protected by a limited 5-year warranty.
