I read about this a few days ago, this will absolutely be fast. But if I am not mistaken this thing will cost a fortune. From what I read it will cost 1000's with a capital S.

Well that's a bit to much for now, but this is where things are heading.
Give it a bit of time and it will affordable.

For now a Vertex will do, it's already 5-6 times as fast as the fastest HD drives.
Have one coming in today too

i would like them to stay away from PCI-E design, instead figure out something faster then SATA II, skip SATA III, and go for SATA VI

The SATA(1-3) bus propably don't have the needed bandwith to feed the enormes amount of data I think. But I rather have them staying away from the PCIE too, or we need at least bords with 3 or 4 PCIE slots if you want to have the possibility to use multiGPU's too.

That's the idea. To convert everything to pci-e interface. It's meant to replace the current pci bus. You can already buy video cards, sound cards, nics and a slew of others in pci-e format. Why shouldn't hard drives be any different? So your motherboard has 5 or 6 pci-e slots? How many regular pci slots did motherboards used to have? It should be the same for current tech.

I would prefer USB 5.0

For everything.

People say this is fast, well it appears to be, but for the money you may as well lurk a bit and set up a crazy raid system with R/W speeds of about 300MB/S.

The problem is, we never had PCI hard drives. You could have 6 PCI cards, an AGP card and 4 hard drives (or more with a PCI hard drive controller).

If everything is PCI-E, you'll be limited to 6 devices total. And that doesn't account for dual-slot cards.

I agree that we need a faster hard drive interface for SSD to really take off. Temporary PCI-E solutions like this are fine for now though.

SATA III that should be out this year will be double the speed of current SATA.
