AMD introduced a technology called StoreMI on the 2018 Ryzen 2000 series of processors, which is similar to Intel’s RST disk acceleration technology, improving disk performance. But now AMD doesn’t mention StoreMI much, and the technology is coming to an end, so AMD says it wants to develop better alternative technologies.
StoreMI technology mainly solves the contradiction between the use of slow HDD hard disk and high-speed SSD hard disk, the former large capacity, performance slag, the latter ultra-fast performance, especially random performance, but low capacity, expensive, StoreMI can let them mix and match.
Simply put, StoreMI technology “merges” the two types of memory into a single drive and automatically moves frequently accessed data to the SSD, allowing a high-capacity mechanical hard drive to have the same speed as sSDs.
In addition to allowing SSDs to accelerate HDDs, AMD StoreMI can also set up 2GB of memory as a cache for converged hard drives when the system memory capacity is greater than 6GB, further speeding up the hard drive’s read and write response.
StoreMI technology first appeared on the Ryzen 2000 processor and X470 motherboard, free of charge.
We’ve tested StoreMI technology before, and it really improves the performance of HDD hard drives, and the performance of commonly used data doesn’t even cost SSDs, which is good.
However, we have also noticed that from last year’s Release of the Rylong 3000 to the present, AMD has rarely mentioned StoreMI technology, there are now reports that AMD will no longer provide new support for the technology, but before March 31 downloaded StoreMI software users can continue to use.
AMD’s goal is to develop higher alternative technologies, and it’s unclear how better, but officials promise to have more features expected to be released in Q2.
