Benchmark Results: PCMark Vantage
Although the IBIS drive bests a single X25-M and a pair in RAID 0 every step of the way, it's the Media Center Performance metric that demonstrates just how substantially the PCIe-connected drive can smoke conventional SATA-attached SSDs.
Though we don't see the maximum performance ratings cited by OCZ in this close-to-real-world collection of tests, it's clear that there's a substantial performance benefit to be had from IBIS and the HSDL interface it employs.
Those HDDs cost more then my entire comptuer
Read 1.4GB/s, Write 1.2GB/s
At those speeds, it's like writing to RAM, only it's your hard drive.
There were also capacities up to 1TB that cost about $4,000. There were even SLC models (which cost 4x more, approx. $15,000) which are slightly faster still.
Personally, I wouldn't mind having 1TB of "slow" RAM as my hard drive, but it's just beyond my budget.
Yup, check it out! =)
