Software that combines the speed of your SSD with the capacity of your hard disk into a single, fast, easy-to-manage drive.
AMD StoreMI Technology is included with every Socket AM4 motherboard that features an AMD 400-series chipset
SSDs are fast, but expensive, and offer minimal capacity. Mechanical hard drives boast large capacity for a low price, but are much slower than an SSD. AMD StoreMI technology “combines” these two types of storage into a single drive and automatically moves the data you access the most to the SSD, so you get the best of both worlds: SSD responsiveness, and mechanical hard disk capacity with its low price.
AMD StoreMI is a powerful tool for PC enthusiasts that want to improve load times, boot times, file management, and system responsiveness.
- Maybe you installed Windows® to a hard drive, but don’t want to reinstall anything to get SSD-like performance: StoreMI can help.
- Maybe you have a large library of files across several drives, and want it all under one drive letter: AMD StoreMI can help.
- Or maybe you wish the hard drive with your games could get you into the match at SSD speeds: StoreMI can help.
As you add more and faster drives to your PC, AMD StoreMI technology automatically pairs your most-used files with the fastest storage for peak performance. You can also use up to 2GB of RAM as a last-level cache for ultra-fast data.
If you have an AMD 400-series chipset, you can download AMD StoreMI software for free.
If you have a socket AM4 motherboard with a 300-series chipset, you can still enjoy the benefits of storage acceleration with Enmotus FuzeDrive software, exclusively for AMD, for an additional fee. Learn More
Spend Less Time Waiting1
High-capacity hard drives are great for storing large libraries, but they’re much slower than an SSD. AMD StoreMI technology can get those files running at up to SSD-like speeds. Simply add an SSD to your system, and let StoreMI do the rest.
Accelerate Your Operating System
Feeling the pain of slow startup times or an unresponsive PC? AMD StoreMI technology can help. Just add an SSD, and StoreMI can automatically help your PC feel smooth and snappy.
Cost-Effective, Non-Proprietary Hardware
You don’t need to invest in expensive and proprietary hardware to get quicker storage performance. AMD StoreMI uses widespread and affordable technologies, like SSDs and NVMe, to accelerate the storage you already have.
Plug & Play for Easy Setup Today
You don’t need to reinstall Windows® to enjoy the benefits of AMD StoreMI technology. Just add faster storage devices to your system, and StoreMI will automatically get your most-used data to the fastest drive for peak performance.
Easily Manage Large Libraries
PC enthusiasts often have many large hard drives for their library of files, but managing the library across multiple drives can be a nuisance. AMD StoreMI technology can make it a whole lot easier by managing those drives as a single large pool.
- Testing by AMD Performance labs as of 12/21/2017 on the following system. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. Results may vary based on driver versions used. System Configs: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, GA-AX370 AORUS Gaming 5 motherboard, 16GB of dual-channel DDR3-3200, Graphics driver 23.20.768.0 (17.40), and a Seagate Barracuda 500GB boot drive. When Enmotus FuzeDrive was enabled, a Samsung 950 PRO NVMe drive was added to the drive pool. Without Enmotus FuzeDrive for Ryzen, the system took 28.611 seconds to complete a boot to windows via explorer; 21.421 seconds to initialize SMSS; 2.274 seconds to initialize the Windows Logon; 56.04 seconds to launch adobe premiere; 59.27 seconds to launch adobe photoshop; and 85.09 seconds to launch DOOM. With Enmotus FuzeDrive for Ryzen enabled, the system took 10.534 seconds to complete a boot to windows via explorer (28.611/10.534=272%, or 172% faster); 3.926 seconds to initialize SMSS (21.421/3.926=546%, or 446% faster); 1.461 seconds to initialize the Windows Logon (2.274/1.461=156%, or 56% faster); 8.27 seconds to launch adobe premiere (56.04/8.27=678%, or 578% faster); 5.75 seconds to launch adobe photoshop (59.27/5.75=1031%, or 931% faster); and 38.77 seconds to launch DOOM (59.27/38.77=219%, or 119% faster).
