RunCore Makes 1TB SATA 6 Gbps 3.5-inch SSD

We love the speed of SSDs, but the capacities sometimes aren't enough for those who are used to the spaces afforded by HDDs.

RunCore will soon release a 1TB SSD solution that's made for desktops, as it comes in a 3.5-inch form factor. Thanks to the extra size, the RunCore 3.5-inch SSD will pack in 1TB of very fast storage.

The RunCore 1TB drive will be made up of two distinct groups of flash memory, each with its own SandForce controller capable of delivering 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write. With the RAID between them, and anyone with this set up will be glad that there's SATA 6Gbps.

There's no pricing set yet, but expect to pay at least a dollar per gigabyte.

    Well there's at least 2 empty 5 1/4" drive are in my computer. So why are not any body is not interested in making 5 1/4" SSD drives?
    I was looking to find a 3.5" drive SSD but $1000 or more is not affordable for me at all because SSD drives have an ending time. At final you can't write into but you can read data.
    I think they must solve this problem at first. Also do you think that this drive will support TRIM or any new technology - with update -?

    I'd actually be curious to find out if that thing is TRIM compatible

    There's already pretty much the same thing in vendor voice...

    Doubt it - as although this is internal RAID, its still RAID, and AFAIK, no current raid tech supports TRIM. If it did, THAT would be big news and you can bet they'd advertise it.

    So once again, how does this make me want to buy it? Hello HD makers, lower your prices so that people can actually afford them. This would be worth it if it was say, less than 300.

    Tell power companies to stop causing outages to memory manufacturers.

    QOUTE: Tell power companies to stop causing otuages to memory manufacturers.

    Tell the memory manufacturers to stop being cheap S.O.B.'s and start spending what they need to spend to make sure that they don't have power interuptions.
