About this Product
Upgrade your Windows® 7-based PC with Crucial Adrenaline to start up twice as fast and boost data access speeds by up to 8 times.*
SSD-like performance. Hard drive capacity.
While traditional hard drives offer high capacities to store a lot of content, solid state drives provide enhanced performance to access that content much more quickly. By using solid state technology as a cache for your existing hard drive, Crucial Adrenaline offers the best of both worlds: SSD-like performance without compromising the capacity of your hard drive.
How Crucial Adrenaline works.
A simple upgrade that allows you to keep your existing hard drive, Crucial Adrenaline comprises a 50GB Crucial m4 SSD, 3.5" adapter bracket, SATA cable, and Dataplex™ caching software**. The solution intelligently places, or "caches", the most frequently needed files (active data) on the SSD and leaves less frequently used files (inactive data) on the hard drive. The result? Faster application load times and increased boot speed.
An easy upgrade.
Because Crucial Adrenaline works with your existing hard drive, there’s no need to transfer files or programs. Simply connect the SSD to your motherboard with a standard SATA cable, start the computer, and then install the Dataplex caching software. Once the software is installed and the system has been rebooted, the software seamlessly integrates your existing hard drive and Crucial Adrenaline into a single storage system. Fully automated, the software then runs in the background and requires no user management.
Quality you can depend on.
Crucial is a trusted name when it comes to SSDs, and that’s no coincidence. As a brand of Micron, a leading innovator and manufacturer of SSDs, we work with our engineers to refine them, test them, and back them with terrific service, support, and a limited three year warranty.
