1tb is not a flavor:)  is human error.
Strange for decades we were spinning something to read or write. look now... last 2 years and we are boosting to extreem speeds:)  i like it. even it is expensive. the important thing that we have it or we can have it. Thanks R&D

Well the good news here is that they have this super fast SSD for $1600 at 128GB, that means the slower SSDs with similar storage space around the $1600 price range will have to come down even more. MOAR SSD advancements please. :)

is this an actual SINGLE ssd or another raid situation with several drives RAID'd together, meaning its actually the same SSD's that have been out all along just in an array. Because, if it is a single drive then I am impressed, otherwise it is just eyewash on products that already exist.

Ok so this is basically a RAM+SSD hybrid. The RAM is what gives it the edge over normal SSDs. Also there is not much point with a ~1Gbps READ speed bandwidth yet. I'm assuming it's read speed. If it's write speed that would be nothing short of AMAZING. Most important of all: Can it be used as a boot drive?

Didn't PhotoFast's consumer SSDs do terribly in the recent roundup?

I bet this thing is ONLY optimized for sequential read/writes

if you thhink about it it is better cost per buck now for some crazy cal stuff.b is buck p is per and g is gig w is mb/s in write and r is mb/s read duh. low is better in score
g-monster 1tb gpb 4500/1024= 4.395 per gig
4500/1000 per read write over all score =88.999
intel x25-m 160gb cost =630/160=3.936
write= 630/70=9 ouch read=630/250 2.52 over all=89.30 but that really bad write
finally ocz vertex 120gb price =385/120=3.208 best
read 385/250= 1.54 best write 385/140= 2.75 over all13.586
that will show you something go cheap and go raid woot. but my test are just by the number not real world performance.scores ocz 13.586 intel89.3 gmonster=89.99

Not even the draft of SATA III [6Gbp/s] is capable of 1GB read and write, so it's impressive as well as future proof. The price on the other hand, well it goes without saying...

They should include this in the Mac Pro desktop. I'm sure they could easily throw in a $4500 hard drive for what they charge.

"However, despite its seemingly unusual size, the SSD comes with a great benefit: super-fast read and writes of 1000 MB/sec and 1000 MB/sec respectively, making it around three to five times faster than standard SATA solutions thanks to the PCI-e connection."
Amazing is the word indeed.

if you put a SATA card in a pci-e slot and hook up a drive to it, you can boot from it... can't see this having to appear as anything different. happy to be told otherwise. This is really a very sweet bit of kit.

Depends on your chipset. I everything past the P45 should be able to do it.

I should build and package these things, and sell them under the brand-name 'Isolinear Chips'.

A few geeks would purchase, and I'd make my investment back. If I am successful enough, I'll get a cease and desist order from some Paramount executive.

Ahh, dreams.

Ok, yes it's expensive, but check out the fusion-io device. These things aren't even available yet and the price/spec wars are already going strong. And I'm sure there are plenty of other companies that have seen the future and have products in development. I don't expect these prices to hold.

You could load to a ram drive from this, and then you would have many GB/s transfer rates, and a reasonable load time.
