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

It will happen really soon as other players catch up with Intel. Competition is a good thing.

No it wont, ssd is still a niche and expensive market. If anything we'll start seeing slow but high capacity ssd's, but those will be pointless.

Even then the actual use in mission critical environments is still probably low, its only a matter of time before we see them everywhere. Probably a few years out.

I really wouldn't call that a fair comparison. A working SSD would smoke a normal desktop hard drive. If anything I'd compare it to getting a velociraptor. A 300GB SSD for around $230 would be a great cost / performance ratio in my book.

velociraptors are really not that much faster then standard 7200rpm, good high density 7200rpm drive has same transfer (or higher) then velocirator, only seek time is better.

SSD will never catch up even with 230 price range.

If I wanna just install my OS on the SSD and use it as a boot sector, are there high gains in the reduction of boot times? Historically, I've used some iteration of Raptor for my boot sector, but have stayed away from RAID0 despite the promised performance gains. The liabilities are just too high for me. On the other hand, if an SSD can comparably make Windows an "instant-on" (relatively speaking of course) proposition, even that high price might make it worth it. I hate waiting.

Anad just reviewed the new firmware. He loves the drive now for read heavy (aka boot) volumes.

I don't see it on Anandtech, but it's on Pc Perspective.

SSD's certainly sound good but the price to performance and capacity ratio is such a long way off....ill be sticking to sata HDD's for the foreseeable future.

Maybe when i see a 250GB SSD for around 150 with performance that blows away a Velociraptor (and that includes writing as well as reading times)...then i may go for it.
