by the time i can afford a SSD drive for my gaming computer of this size (couple hundred bucks) we should have drives much faster (maybe with light peak or something) till then ill just keep about my daily business and wait for my 7970 show up at my door
I would love to Raid 5 these in my area. 4tb ssd storage is better than the 2tb disk storage we have now. If its $4500 * 5= $22500 for the disks
$34500 not bad for 4tb of ultimate storage.
With density this high in such a small form factor HDD manufacturers are going to need a small miricle to stay in business for server markets over the next few years. As with the 12TB R5 they were showing off the other day, they can really charge an arm and a leg, and still have better IOPS/$ than a slew of HDDs. Plus it will be on a single card, produce very little heat, and take very little power. Very exciting tech! Can't wait for it to filter down to the consumer and prosumer markets!
