Sequential Steady State
Steady state measurements remove the advantage of pSLC caching. Intel's SandForce-controlled SSD 530 does well in this test, even with the 50% entropy setting we use.
The 512GB Reactor trails nearly every other drive on this chart. At the same time, it wasn't designed to perform well under such an extreme load.
I guess because in some ways its so old school. (It saved money back then too.) Back in the "Home Computer" days card-edge connectors were used for expansion connections (on one side of the connection.) Retro consoles used it too with game carts. The PC used it then, and even still today, for expansion AND adding graphics. Back in the day Floppy drives, primarily 5.25" and larger used such a connection for data (and a molex for power.)
If that patent ever gets challenged, I dunno if it will hold-up because of all of that. In Modern storage though, the connector is, currently, unique though.
