    2TB - combining presumably four 512MB SSDs configured via RAID.
    Surely that would be 2GB if it was 4 512mb drives?

    4 * 512MB ain't 2TB

    EDIT: Only 20 minutes late, not bad!

    Well, the 4x512MB = 2TB , Oh, either Strikedown misquoted or Hexus edited it later.

    I can't really see this as being correct. And with the price of SSD drives at the moment, I don't think anyone would be able to buy this.

    So, does anyone know if this is real or not? Also, has anyone seen this video (linked elsewhere in the forum IIRC): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKcSxd_ynsM

    they are not aimed at people though the ones that have come up have been the wrong side of £500 so this could be another example but better

    Re: News - Super Talent announces ridiculously-fast PCIe RAIDDrive

    They would have to be cheap as they have no expandability.

    Seems like an odd idea to me though, a PCI-E slot used for a single "drive" (effectively)

    Re: News - Super Talent announces ridiculously-fast PCIe RAIDDrive

    What's the difference between this and having an expensive RAID controller and 4 drives in RAID-0?

    This is far more efficient as it only uses a PCI-e slot and not any drive bays or cabling. If you can justify the cost and need that kind of speedy access to your data, there isn't a lot that can compete.

    How about a RAID-0 of these over multiple PCI-e slots... like 4 on a Core i7 board

    Re: News - Super Talent announces ridiculously-fast PCIe RAIDDrive

    Although a nice idea, if true..., it can't cost any less than £3000 based on current SSD prices (the cheapest OCZ 250GB drive at £440)

    Firstly, you can upgrade the drives on a RAID controller independently. Secondly, you can have a multi-channel RAID controller and have multiple arrays setup on the same card.

    Hence it would need to be fairly cheap as most people willing to spend the big bucks would go with the more flexible solution I would have thought.

    I see what you mean, but I don't agree that the people that are likely to buy this are going to go for a more flexible solution.

    If Super Talent didn't see a market for this they wouldn't realease it. I bet they already have customers lined up for it, using it for some very specialist applications.

    Random Read/Write IO/s of smaller blocks ?
    3 models, so performance may vary.
    Longevity of wear leveling and performance loss ?
