THE Western Digital today announced its new hybrid drive – NAND flash and magnetic disks together – only 5mm thick, still in the testing phase. It will have 500GB of capacity and should cost a tenth of the value of SSDs of the same size, while offering similar performance. The manufacturer is expected to give more information about the novelty this Thursday (9/13), at a conference for investors.[[Engadget]
