Ah, another one? Well, Lev_Astov, here's the smaller capacity you wanted. I'm sure the price will be much smaller too.
I don't see the price in this article. It is probably one of those "if you have to ask, you can't afford" type deals.
Haha! Yeah, well, funny thing about that:
It's a start, but still not in the realm of reason.
@aybabtu: If it's the same one they previously announced (and it looks like it is), the prices start at about $1500 and reach up into the $3K range.
I said it before and I'll say it again: Smaller, cheaper. We don't need to put our whole lives on a SSD, just the files we need to load quickly. Let's see more action in the 16-64 GB range!
"I didn't cry when Bambi's mother was shot... but I cried when HAL was turned off."
For those of us with many games that would love to take advantage of the speed of this type of SSD we would need sizes close to the 1TB. I myself have near 300Gb of games as it is and many games I still plan on buying down the road. So, to me it's nice to see that there are large drives in the works. But, with the SATA 6Gb/s coming up it's possible to get to these speeds and save a PCIe slot. It's a great time right now for the tech and I'm sure we'll see better improvements as well as larger size and lower costs before this is all over.
Bootable is nice, but the price is not. Wow they want your kidney for one of these.
Well, Soupstyle, you do have two kidneys...
