SandForce launches first SSD range

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardwar...ew-ssd-range/1

SandForce has announced its first range of SSDs for enterprise and mobile use, and it has a trick up its sleeve in the form of a neat new controller dubbed Duraclass.

Cool Idea but unless this works as promised I think that this will be a flop.

All the technological innovation coming from the competition in the SSD market is great, but until that competition starts really hammering the prices down I'll still class SSDs up there with SLI and Raptors - too expensive for the benefits gleaned.
When the prices DO finally come down it'll be glorious, though.

Lets wait and see I guess, the more competition the better - I'm looking forward to buying a nice large affordable SSD in a couple of years without any speed degredation problems.

Prices have been dropping rapidly for the last year or so, its just that they started so high its still going to take a while before most people would consider using one in their system, and probably a few years before large numbers of people replace all their HDD's with SSD's.

What is it with companies sending out press releases boasting cheaper than the rival products, only to not mention any prices at all?!

I doubt that they'll be able to increase the lifespan of MLC drives just with a new controller, I'll wait till SLC gets cheaper.

Can someone tell me what's wrong with this drive to make it so cheap?

(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148185)

64gb, SLC and under $200..

I liken the SLC vs MLC debate to 10k vs. 7k HDDs. To certain markets the differences DO indeed make a difference. But to the average user there isn't a whole lot of tangible benefit. And the performance to price ratio (as far as the average or power user (not corporate)) will soon come to favor MLC once the technology is mature enough.

It was interesting reading the details of the controller's magic in this article: http://digg.com/d1obHO but I'd really like to see this one in bit-tech's labs to see if it's really all it's cracked up to be.
