not bad :)
The new generation arrives and I hope this will reduce the prices
also we have to wait to see the new generation from Intel and other companies to get a good picture of the performance we can get.
But this start to become interesting...

Excuse me TOM and editors! how about a update to graphics and SSD Charts i'm dieing to know how all the new SSD, Inferno,collosus LT,Real SSD, Phoenix Series Stack up against old rival Intel, maybe price performance comparison with raid zero configurations to make up of low capacity of some of these drives.

Intel better come out with something fast. The only reason id buy one of their was for the capacities, as 80 gigs seems perfect for a ssd. Now with a decent competitor at those capacities, Intel drives lose that, and to be honest are fairly slow compared to a lot of new drives out now. No ssd is really slow though. They just have have the write speed of this, and no where near the read.

SSDs need few more years, maybe 2011 or early 2012 to see some decent prices with these drives. They are still too expensive for most people.

When SATA II is saturated. Until you use up all of SATA II's bandwidth, then there's not much point using SATA III.

SATA II actually is saturated at about 375 GB/s. I mean, look at that, and look at other ssds. I think its time :lol:

384MB/s is SATA II's theoretical max throughput. :lol::lol::lol:

[citation][nom]ares1214[/nom]Yeah, close enough All the same though. Except I mistyped, I mean MB/s, not GB/s[/citation]

yup, i must try that one on my ISP "HEY, WHERE IS MY 8GB INTERNET??""Sir, its 8MB""whatever.."

I paid $ 235 for my Intel Gen2 80GB SSD, and am loving it in my desktop with SC2 , Win7 ULT 64, 4GB DDR3 and GTX460 1GB. Oh and get this, I am using an AMD Tricore BE720 (default 2.8GHz) overclocked to 3.6 GHz using a Zalman 9900 cooler. I won't be feeling any need to upgrade, besides adding 2TB NAS drives to the system, or if Intel or AMD release a molecular CPU, till then, I'll enjoy what I have and pay down my debts. doh, a SLI GTX460 is calling, and so is a 2nd SSD RAID aaargh, i'll never save money!

I have 3 (120GB) on their way to my home right now via Newegg. 2 for a friend of mine (new build)and one for my parents (old 80 GB just gave out). I can't wait to see how they preform! It just sucks that out of the three, none are for me. :-(

Intel still edges out with the Random Read performance as king. All other aspects of course it is trailing behind the new stuff.

Intel is leading the market of SSD's. They are the first ones to drop prices and increase competition, and they are releasing their new 25nm[?] SSD's at the end of the year, and today's 80gb is suppsoed to be replaced by a 160gb... That will lower prices TREMENDOUSLY
