Exclamation 1Tb PCI-E SSD Drive!?

http://vr-zone.com/articles/photofas....html?doc=6805



Photofast G-Monster PCI-e SSD

Quote:
* 1 TB MLC with SDRAM as local cache (other sizes are available - 256GB/512GB)
* Hardware based RAID controller
* PCI-Express x8 interface
* Max. write up to 700MB/s
* Fully Compliant with RoHS directive
* CE and FCC compatibility


The drive is stated to offer maximum read and write speeds of up to 750 MB/sec. and 700 MB/sec respectively.
Should be available in April.

I'm really curious about the price of this thing. It has to cost a fortune. I'm guessing it'll be $800-$1000 for the the 256Gb model.

EDIT: Here is the .pdf datasheet:

Also, I'm not sure how easy these will be to find outside of Japan. PhotoFast seems to have a bunch of products but I've never heard of them before:

I see that some of their past products used the standard (crap) JMicron controller. This seems to be something else entirely though since it uses PCI-E and seems to support speeds well past SATA's limitations.

EDIT: Just a funny tidbit of info:

PC-100 SDRAM provides 800Mb\sec of bandwidth. These drives supposedly can hit 700-750Mb\sec read and write speeds. We now have mass storage devices that are nearly as fast as RAM was 10 years ago.

Him this is definitely a repost, but since I can't find it, you're off the hook. Either that or I've seen it somewhere else.

It wasn't that same maker, but it's the same device.

EDIT: It was OCZ.

The 1Tb version will cost you all of your appendages and both the kidneys of your first born child.
