Default Intel X-25 SSD drives, WOW!!!

It looks like we are finally getting SSD drives. Here's Anandtech review of the incoming X-25 drive from Intel (starts shipping this week, price of the 80 Gb model is $595 for 1000 units). It crushes current OCZ offerings, but price is double. However performance is sometimes more than double, no more pauses and langs during multitasking.

BTW look what it can do for Crysis miminum FPS:

Overall drive performance

Core i7 920 / Noctua NH-U12P SE1366
Gigabyte EX58-Extreme / 6 Gb OCZ PC3-12800 Platinum
1 x Intel X-25M G2 80 Gb / 3 x Seagate 1 Tb (RAID5)
ATI 5870 (Graphics) + GeForce 9600GT (PhysX) on Samsung SM244T 1920x1200
LG GGW-H20L BluRay & HD-DVD / Logitech Z-5500 5.1 DTS / Westone 3 Earphones
Asus Xonar D2 / 360 Elite Wireless Controller / Gigabyte Odin GT 800W
Windows 7 x64
(also a 360 and a PSP )
