BenchmarkReviews.com: Well, we're almost halfway through 2011, and guess what? Although SSDs have come down in price, they're still pretty darn expensive.

But Intel's new Smart Response Technology, available initially on Z68 Express motherboards, promises to bring much of that speedy SSD performance to users via a small SSD used as a cache for the main hard drive.
