The first announced SF-2000 win. These drives are going to clean-up. SandForce is the one to watch right now.
Can't wait to see their consumer controller built up on a Corsair SSD! Gonna be awesome!
I'm afraid to buy one though, since in a few months they will double these specs again!
Let them into the SSD arena! The more players there are, the sooner prices will come down!
Competition is KING!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
^Yes. More people in the SSD market is only going to make it get better faster.
Nice to see drives that can make use of the SATA 6 bandwidth on the new mobos. I thought be might have to wait longer.
