What are you talking about? SAS 2.0 (6gbps) was introduced in 2009. by the time this is released it'll be 4 years.

Which is roughly the same lifespan as SAS 1.0 (3gbps)

That's really impressive, but at the same time ... I'll be interested in SSDs at 3GB/s, 6GB/s or 12 GB/s at exactly the same time the price comes down by about two-thirds.
 
[citation][nom]andy_newton[/nom]In mere 3 years, the seagate will die, just like 7200.11 and 7200.12 barracudas.[/citation]

Do you have any information, besides that two almost completely unrelated devices failed, to support your claim?
 
[citation][nom]Wigglerthefish[/nom]Hmm the speeds should be up enough for PCM memory if it hits the consumer market, yes?[/citation]

Fixed it for you. Unless you have some inside knowledge on companies that will manufacture PCM devices, let's not get ahead of ourselves and assume that it will be here at all. Also, Flash still has tons of room for improvement where performance is concerned (OCZ has a 12TB 7.2GB/s max sequential PCIe SSD and a slower, but higher capacity at 16TB, 6GB/s max sequential PCIe SSD), so it probably won't get replaced any time soon, that is unless another technology with similar or greater performance comes out with lower cost per GB.

What'd seagate ever do to you?

[citation][nom]snkmad[/nom]Now i hope they really start to drop price per GB.[/citation]

Well these are enterprice versions so no price drop in there... It is guite easy to see that these will cost 3-6$ GB at least, propably more...
 
[citation][nom]nforce4max[/nom]What is wrong with having a cheaper home? Not everyone can cough up $300k-$500k for a "normal" house.[/citation]

I didn't say that there's anything wrong with it; I simply made an observation. Drives like these are unlikely to cost more than a few thousand dollars.

If they slap an Apple sticker on it, it will cost as much as a house.

[citation][nom]frostyfireball[/nom]At the rate SSDs are improving, might aswell skip SAS and SATA 12Gb/s and go straight up to 18 or 24Gb/s.[/citation] screw that, we should just go straight to SATA 64GB/s! Today!

... I bet once we hit 64GB/s SSD drives, it will be SOOO fast, that it'll turn back time.

You reach to press the power button on your computer... and before you even touch it - your PC is on and you're already browsing porn.
