ADATA Unveils the SX2000 1600 GB Solid State Drive

The ADATA SX2000 is an enterprise class SSD that offers 1600 GB of storage and read / write speeds of up to 1.8 GB/s.

Featured at ADATA’s booth at Computex is the SX2000, a rather impressive enterprise class SSD that provides 1600 GB of storage and read / write speeds of up to 1.8 GB/s and 200,000 IOPS, respectively, via a PCIe 2.0 x4 (SSF-8639) interface.

Though ADATA has yet to provide any further information on the SX2000’s technical specifications, pricing or availability, we can safely assume that it will come with a sticker price of at least $2,000.

    Good to see the capacities of SSDs increasing to where they could actually one day replace HDDs for large storage situations

    Sweet!!! I really want large capacity SSDs but right now the cost per GB of these drives is absolutely outrageous.

    Well someone should come out with SSD's designed for the home NAS. Large capacity, low power, with less focus on speed since even a slow SSD will still be faster than a WD Red HDD or similar. Less electricity, less heat, much lower initialisation current draw. A slow consumer 2.5" 2TB SATA SSD has to be a heap cheaper than a PCIe enterprise one.

    Fully did a double take when I read the title of this, I thought it said 160, not 1600gb!

    The controller doesnt add that much cost, its the size of the memory in it to make that much space. This is why samsung started playing with tlc memory and it saves some money versus mlc. Tlc is slower, but also has less writes. Mine you, better controllers do cost some, but right now they know if the people complaining cant afford 120gb drives, their is no way they can afford 1600gb. The price is not even that outrageous knowing how many benefits ssd gives you over hd. Not worrying about hd randomly dieing is worth alot...let alone programs opening instantly and low boot times.

    Actually, when a hard disk is about to die, there's always some signs that come with it. Its easier to predict when a HDD will die compared to SSD that may die without warning.

    Also, if a HDD with important stuff stops working, there are some services that may salvage data from it.

    I know a lot of people are still saying they are too pricey but even a nice 60gb SSD (can find on sale for $50 from time to time) will really make your system scream compared to a HDD. I know it can suck putting the OS on one drive and all you large non-essential programs and data on another... but it is so worth it. I bought my first SSD (60gb OCZ Agility) in early 2010 and never looked back. The difference between a WD Black drive was amazing. The drive is still working great today.

    If they used a 3.5" case with dual SATA connection they could have 4x this storage at twice the speed

    "an error has occurred"
    what's up Tom's?

    Exactly. I love my SSDs, but don't trust them any further than I could throw a 500-lb gorilla. Everything is constantly backed up on a home NAS with an HDD array. As someone who has had more than his share of memory failures in builds over the years, I do not have a high confidence level in SSDs...even as one who has yet to suffer a failure from all three of them, the oldest being 3 years and counting.

    1600 GB SSD sounds great But for $2000 is too expensive and not sure I would trust a SSD that big not to fail.

    Therè needs to be a advanced "s.m.a.r.t" diagnostic for sdd able to identify every little-known thing that will fail with these drives.

    Why the 2.5" case when it's a PCIe card?

    2000? My money's on closer to 3000.
