    Re: Corsair Blog: 25nm SSD Transition Q/A

    Very interesting, Yellowbeard.

    From the test results, it seems that the perception of the 25nm as being "slower" is a bit simplistic, in that it seems to depend which benchmark you use, and at least in some aspects, the 25nm seem faster, and in others even where slower, it's often very marginally slower.

    Though most of us are performance geeks, I have to wonder if a small loss in performance is worth it if it results in a technology where costs/GB can hopefully come down significantly .... because my view is that they will have to if SSDs are ever to become mainstream as a replacement for an HD, rather than a performance-enhancing addition to an HD-based system.

    Thanks for the info.

    Re: Corsair Blog: 25nm SSD Transition Q/A

    if, as Sara states, the cost per gb drops fairly substantially, clearly not as much as platter drives, but quite a lot.. and this is done simply by sticking with fractionally older tech, then there's a very real possibility of people grabbing something larger than simply a boot drive (60 - 80gig) to hold proper speed requirement data ie film and games on an SSD

    i have an 80gig drive.... and with good install of OS, apps and one important game it's at 60gig. I have no room for editable film and stuf.

    But if a 250 gig drive per viable cost wise, it would be great to work from as a project drive for movies etc, and if it needs to be done on current tech and not on forward tech.. so be it.

    Just a note that you would probably want a non-sandforce controller drive if doing film stuff - most film data is already compressed, so the controller can't compress it further and with this generation of controllers at least there's a sizable speed penalty for dealing with it.

    I'm all for cheaper drives!
