"Computex — With OCZ now out of the memory business, we weren't surprised to see the company's Computex showcase dominated by solid-state drives. However, we didn't expect to see a mechanical hard drive included in the mix. The 2.5" drive isn't made by OCZ, but it does ride shotgun on a new PCI Express x4 card dubbed the RevoDrive Hybrid."

Trying to figure out how this particularly differs from a Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drive beyond needing to be plugged into a pcie 4x slot.

I've been using a 500gb version of the momentus xt for a while now and it is every bit as fast as my WD velociraptor if not a wee bit quicker. And it will slot right into a laptop.

This might be a good idea of the ssd side of things is 64k and you use it on an Intel Z68 (or newer) Sandy Bridge motherboard.

The good thing about adding in the mechanical drive is that capacities can be much higher now at lower costs.
