Microsoft Surface Pro 2 perhaps?

Ah, Plextor.
Not so much recognized like Samsung, OCZ, Crucial etc, but very solid quality.

Like to see this as an option in an upcoming MacBook Pro/Air

They were recognized at one point for their CD & DVD burners respecitively, but they sat on their laurels and other companies surpassed them, one being LG.

This does look interesting. I like seeing Plextor getting some good exposure. My favorite components usually come from Intel, EVGA, OCZ, and Plextor.

Anyone with indepth information know that if they could sacrifice IOP's for capacity to reduce price or if reducing IOPs would not drop the price substantially enough. Please disregard the fact IOPs are the reason for SSD's.

yea plextor made some pretty good external dvd burner solutions.. it still works although i dont use it any more .. I have yet to try any of there ssd solutions though. having tried both patriot and ocz .. im always leary of driver bugs .. lol i had my fair share of them with ocz and none at all with patriot to bad they stopped making them.

Wow. Not so long ago I used to think the SATA 3 interface speed was overkill...

lostmyclan512mb ddr3 ? why not 1024mb? if that get 700mb/s its overkill for 512mb cache (1333mhz with 64bit bus) maybe 4.000mb/s transfers i dunno



Cache Size != Write speed

Plextor optical drives are actually manufactured by Lite-On. Very few companies make CD/DVD drives anymore due to the low cost and negligible profit margins.

i wanted it done yesterday, even though i just thought of it right now!
anything short of that is not over kill

OK plextor , make it a real card with PCIe X1 3.0 which has bandwidth upto 1G/s

you don't get options for macbook air, you get what you get.
March 15, 2013 5:27:39 PM

and the price is.....??

Now they are, but what I was mentioning was when they made the drives themselves!

Let's see if the benchmarks hold up to the marketing.

Yep a few years ago they where about the best you could get for CD/DVD burners.

Most SSD's today can hit 700MB/s or faster if they were not limited by the sata port.

The reason why you see the speeds of most SSD's topping out at 550-560MB/s is the sata port bottlenecking.

If you get rid of the sata interface and replace it with a direct pci-e interface, you will get faster speeds. In the case of pci-e x2, you get 1000MB/s which will effectively be lower when you consider the management overhead just like with sata III offering 600MB/s but in the real world, you get about 550MB/s

PCIe 2.0 x2 (although x2 is kinda weird for PCIe and PCIe 3.0 x1 or PCIe 1.0 x4 would be used much more often) can get you very close to 1GB/s and SATA3's failure to reach 600MB/s isn't because of any "management" for it, at least not directly. We could make a set of SATA 6Gb/s hardware/software that can reach effectively 600MB/s (not that 550MB/s isn't already pretty close, it is, after all, less than 10% lower) if we wanted to.

That's An Impressive Set OF Specs For A Consumer Based SSD
