Probably, assuming that people other than the wealthy few who have funding sources such as oil companies, or own a facility that makes various popular CPU's with triple channel memory support, can afford this new SSD

Knowing gskill they will price the SSD in a way that requires you to get very lucky in the stock market in order to buy one.

Since when is 250-310 dollars being wealthy? SSD's price per gig will always be garbage but if you want performance you will pay for it. If you go to work and take care of your family if you have one, then you should be able to save to buy whatever you want. Sure it youll have to wait as long as it takes to get 300 bucks but after you get a sence of accomplishment.

I myself was waiting for Intels new offerings but am very dissappointed at the performance and that their using a Marvell controller! So Im selling my lightly used Intel 80g and purchasing something with the new Sandforce controller because the seem to be mopping up everybody.

The best part is that Im no where near wealthy. Im just smart with my cash.

+1 I can't keep up with all the different versions of controllers made within the same companies even. Doesn't Sandforce have a military one, some super-hardcore one, mainstream, not mainstream, budget, etc etc.
