    I honestly don't see Braidwood as anything other then a distraction right now. It's underpowered and unneeded.

    Agreed. More RAM and/or a faster disk will see much more benefit for the same investment IMHO.

    By the time it finally comes out we'll all be using real SSD's so it'll be pointless.

    What's the point?
    Surely it's less cost effective to modify motherboard design, add cache sockets to the motherboard and buy the cache separately than it is for SSD manufacturers to add a bit more to each SSD. And what about extra latency on cache that's not physically on the drive?
