    FASTEST SSD ON PLANET EARTH

    The future is now:

    "Fusion-IO IODrive: FASTEST SSD ON PLANET EARTH PCI-E X4 card 80 or 160GB SILICON POWER 800MB/S read 680MB/S write 100,000 random IOPS!"

    http://www.dvnation.com/images/Atto-IO-Drive-80GB.PNG

    I wonder what it does in a RAID setup?
    -- W3570 @ 3.8 P6TD on Swiftech H20-220
    -- QX9650 P5K-E on Swiftech H20-220 water, ATI 3870, G.Skill PC 8500.



    The only thing for sure, is that nothing is for sure!

    They were supposed to send test samples to someone that was doing a roundup of all SSD's, (dom i think?) but they never got around to it and we all just assumed they were full of it. =o

    It appears to actually be available now. $2650 for 80GB, I'd rather throw a half dozen mtrons on a good RAID card for that price

    Well, look at the actual hardware. That isn't a flash drive, it's RAM on a PCI-E board. 80GB/160GB of RAM is pretty expensive. Never mind, I've been corrected.

    Nah, it's SLC flash.

    The fact that they can make an SSD that fast already...GG regular hard drives?

    When you have a multi-million dollar data center, I think those are worth it

    i wonder why they put it in a pci-e 4x slot only? I would think that would bottleneck it.

    You would need to think again - single PCIe x4 (not 4x) slot is good for 1GB/s
