Solid-state drive DDR SDRAM based SSD. Max 128 GB and 3072 MB/s. PCIe, DRAM and NAND-based SSD. It uses an external power supply to make the DRAM non-volatile. As of 2010[update], most SSDs use NAND-based flash memory, which retains data without power. Hybrid drives or solid state hybrid drives (SSHD) combine the features of SSDs and HDDs in the same unit, containing a large hard disk drive and an SSD cache to improve performance of frequently accessed data.[9][10][11] Development and history[edit] Early SSDs using RAM and similar technology[edit] SSDs had origins in the 1950s with two similar technologies: magnetic core memory and card capacitor read-only store (CCROS).[12][13] These auxiliary memory units (as contemporaries called them) emerged during the era of vacuum-tube computers. Later, in the 1970s and 1980s, SSDs were implemented in semiconductor memory for early supercomputers of IBM, Amdahl and Cray;[15] however, the prohibitively high price of the built-to-order SSDs made them quite seldom used.
