A new HDD hybrid array for MSI-branded desktops was shown at Computex

MSI, a world leading gaming brand, has shown a prototype of a new hybrid gaming storage array at this year's Computex. It is a new all-in-one storage device that holds two NVMe SSDs up to 110mm in length and a 2.5" HDD for increasing application and gaming performance. The storage system highlights the need for low-cost moving media required to hold gamers' large data volumes while also emphasizing low latency and high throughput performance.

According to MSI, we should expect up to 7, 200 MBps from the dual NVMe SSD array that runs in RAID 0. Using large capacity NVMe SSDs will cache a lot of data, so only very cold data will come to the host system directly from the spinning disk. To protect the data, the card features an array of super capacitors that preserve data in flight in case of power loss. MSI hybrid storage card should benefit from customized blower fan that can ensure high-speed storage operation for long periods.

MSI tells us the card will ship in MSI branded desktop systems. The company targets the gamers having problems with low-speed HDDs and doesn't have plans to release the MSI gaming storage card as a standalone product. But, hopefully, with enough consumer interest, they may rethink that strategy.

The new MSI hybrid storage array can be a great solution for gamers but sooner or later it may fall victim to a logical or physical failure just like any other storage device and, as a result, all data on the card may get inaccessible. To get sensitive information back, owners of MSI hybrid gaming storage cards will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider.

ACE Data Recovery team makes the best choice when it comes to retrieving data from any type of storage devices. ACE Data Recovery engineers are the best in the industry and can develop highly specific solutions for unusual cases. Besides, ACE Data Recovery has a number of full-service laboratories for performing the most complicated data retrieval procedures. ACEs succeed in recovering data from failed storage RAID arrays considered "unrecoverable" by other companies.
