For a long time the only option for storing data inside computer was a traditional HDD with spinning palters. SSDs came along and used flash storage that needed no spinning platters and offered more speed. People are now starting to move to SSDs rather than HDDs in force with the price of SSD storage becoming down.
Addonics has announced a couple new ways to get solid-state storage in your notebook or desktop computer with two new CFast adapters. The first adapter is the CFast HDD adapter that lets users put either 8GB CFast or 32GB CFast cards inside the machine. The HDD adapter is a direct replacement for a 2.5-inch drive in a desktop or notebook computer.
The SATA CFast adapter can be had in a PCI bracket or a 3.5-inch drive bay device and it connects directly to the SATA port on your mainboard. Both devices let the CFast storage card be used as bootable devices. Read/write speed on CFast cars is promised to be 600 MB/s.
