"Samsung's latest SSD boosts capacity to 512MB"

Should that be Gb? Hehe. What's the point though it saturates the 3Gb/s SATA bus?

Hehe I noticed that typo too

512 GB and read/write speeds in the 200s could be a nice drive, even if it'll cost an unholy amount ^^

Damnit. I was *so* careful to check, double-check, and triple-check the article body I didn't pay any attention to the image caption.

The tech in SSD's is moving really fast it seems like every day bit puts up some break through in the SSd sector, its such a shame they are still soooo expensive compared to traditional hard disks.

Nice to see people working like mad on the SSD technologies. Put them together and we'll have some kick ass SSDs soon.

Sigh. I don't want to sound like I am just posting the same thing over and over, but again, why the hell do companies not show off their random speeds? That's what matters. Although the size (512GB) is quite impressive in all fairness.

An hour extra battery life is impressive if true though, considering SSDs use such bare all power anyway.

i just which nand production was put forward and not one of them lines cut in the new cut everything and saving world we now live in...
These SSD's would make an absolute fortune for commericial and general consumer use, had they just threw themselves some stick at keeping the nand production high and ssd prices down.
These should be retailing at no more than £200 for the 512gb. But sadly we live in such a cost cutting world that people are cutting even the most profitable sectors of their organisations

Don't forget about ramping up production so the prices come down to acceptable levels.

3 things I don't like about current SSDs: the use of NAND, the small(er) size, and the huge cost. So far, this drive has addressed two of those: good size for system and programs, and a non-volatile DDR over NAND.

For the current price in Australia of SSD drives in excess of 250GB, I can build a complete HTPC (including a Lian Li case for drives near the same capacity as this), so if Samsung can get this out at a good price, it will definitely be a winner in my books

If it's hampered by SATA3 Gb/s, why make it with that interface?

I hate it when companies demonstrate performance of solid state devices by quoting their sequential speed. In 99% of cases, it is not sequential speed that makes SSD's superior to hard disks, it's random read and write.

Until manufacturers start honestly quoting decent random speeds for their drives, I'll just keep waiting until benchmarks come along and (most likely) show the drive being trounced by intel and sandforce devices.

If I recall, Intel should be starting production of 25nm base NAND this year which will continue the trend of increased performance and decreased prices. I think things will start to look pretty good for SSDs in late 2011 or early 2012.

This new drive really is tempting me to purchase for my 3D rendering workstation here at work. My workstation is HDD limited when trying to compile the rendered frames from my render farm.

With every state of the art PC component costing $1000.00 including the dam PC case (Thermaltake Level 10)
how are we supposed to afford all this stuff on a PC gamers salary? Nice advancement in tech but how about you lower the price already.

512GB SSD is great but at $1000.00 I'll stick to HDD
