No, look at the picture. Clearly PCI Express.

LSI SandForce SF3700 folks. Durawrite (compression optimization) is still present. This is the old "you need to use this type of data and this benchmark" to see the max numbers scheme. I am much more interested if OCZ/Toshiba/whatever they are get to releasing the PCIe solution based on Barefoot 3.

I wonder what boot time is gonna be with this thing. I wonder if that will even be relevant when this finally hits shelves....and yes, I'm one of "those" people who bought an SSD solely for quick boot up of Windows. I booted my laptop (HDD) the other day and it felt like an eternity to the splash screen. Even the start up chime played in slow-mo.

@gordostacoshop:Bootup time is already pretty low for windows, from pressing the button to fully loaded is less than 20 seconds with my SSD. Shaving say 25% off of that is still only 15 seconds. Fairly negligible to most people. Now for gaming and loading large levels, or people working with large video files. I can see where there would be a real need for this drive. In many games, developers are creating virtual worlds, huge and vast. Maps are getting way to big. Loading times are getting continuously longer.

That’s the rub though. My new fast CPU and SSD are just as slow as my old CPU and HD when loading most games. My friend I play side by side and most times you can’t even tell. The GPU and RAM are doing things that the games must wait for anyway. Supper fast SSDs above (True) 200MB/s aren’t worth much in day to PC use and gaming.

There are a few reviews around, Toms has one and BF3 is one of the few that it makes a difference but it's just not enough to make up for the price gap. Get a 2.7TB disk drive for $130 or a 0.45TB SSD for $375 and not see much difference in most all tasks or save that $250-ish towards a better GPU or CPU. At this point SSDs are still kind of a waste.

I'm planning on my next build to use an SSD as a boot drive, and a SSHD as my main drive

Considering Intel's 800 GB offering at 2 GB/s speeds is about $4,000, it would depend on the price point that Kingston is aiming for.
