America's last standing DRAM manufacturer, Micron Technology, has bulked out its solid-state drive range, with two large capacity models offering huge performance and power-management benefits. The 2.5in P200 drives range in capacity from 16GB to 128GB, use single-level cell NAND technology and are meant for servers. Micron …
100MBs write speed is an achievement in consumer class. I wonder what speeds the "enterprise" P200 is going to offer.
"Although Micron hasn’t said how much either drive will cost"
I think it's safe to assume that "If you have to ask, you can't afford it"
Just love these little thangs.. Here's hoping for a 'reasonable' price for them (to some 'reasonable' would be a few dollars/pounds, but realistically it's more likely a few hundred pounds/dollars [naturally identicle prices for both sides of the Atlantic])
Bring it on!! I could have 2 of these inplace of one SATA (Space is my issue, not speed!)
Micron = Crucial, right? Crucial are currently flogging 64GB SSDs (without much further detail) for [gulp] £648.59 including VAT. So......
SSD vs. rotating mass storage
Unless this thing is cheaper, I'd still rather just add another 80MB/sec Raptor to my array.
Mines the one with the dollah billz falling out of the pockets (not really).
