Super Talent Reveals RAIDDrive UpStream PCIe SSD

At CeBIT 2012, Super Talent introduced its new RAIDDrive UpStream PCIe SSD aimed for the consumer market. The drive will be up against recently announced Mushkin and Other World Computing (OWC) PCIe SSDs, along with OCZ's RevoDrive X3 and RevoDrive X2 PCIe SSDs. 

The drive is based on four LSI SandForce SF-1200 processors in a RAID 0 configuration. The card features PCIe 1.1 x8 interface and will be available in capacities of 220 GB, 460 GB, and 960 GB. The UpStream drive utilizes the four LSI SandForce controllers for sequential speeds of around 1 GB/s (read) & 900 MB/s (write), which is roughly twice the speed of a SATA 6.0 GB/s based SSD.

Super Talent has not announced the official date when the RAIDDrive UpStream will hit the market or its final pricing, but it is expected to be available in April with pricing competitive against current PCIe based SSDs.

    Competitive against other PCIe cards = expensive enough to not want to disclose the actual amount early and turn people away before its released!

    If it is anything like the Revodrive and closer to other SSD prices, I can deal with the bad $/GB ratio that we have already...

    Especially with more mobos adding support for PCI-e bootable drives, it will be good news for the consumers :)
