This news sounds really promising. I like hearing about competition in the market.
Apparently, it's really really hard to build SSD controllers that keep up with Samsung controllers judging by all the reviews that come through Tomshardware. When I hear that Silicon Motion is designing a Samsung killer, it's hard to believe. It would be great if that were the case though.

Awesome new device! Good to have competition! But it is still slower than system using RAM disk cache utility, as SuperCache, PrimoCache, etc. You can also use a ordinary SSD drive as L2 level cache, to enlarge cache size. When coupled to a few gigabytes of RAM as L1 cache, you have I/O throughput around 8000 MB/s and cache hit above 80%.
