    In 10 years we'll laugh and think wow, how slow was Tb/s and look how much it cost!

    I remember using a 32mb flash mp3 player, and thinking wow that's a lot of music for such a small device!

    Price for this? I haven't seen it either. They make an 80 GB PCI-e 4x versions for consumers. Single card is $900, dual card is $2k. 320 GB Enterprise version is $8k. They gave a 320 enterprise version away at a Silicon Valley SQL User group meeting in October.

    But when it finishes booting, it will read your mind and algorithmically assemble the answers to questions you are thinking about before you realize it. And then it will offer to **** you. (followed by BSOD)

    Exactly. Plus, you're not going to be able to fit even a handful of these in a consumer motherboard. I think everyone has missed the fact that YOU NEED 220 OF THESE TO GET 1TB/S!

    Still, if each of these cards can do 6GB/s then it's better than anything you'll get through SATA. Plus it scales really well if 220 of these give 1TB/s, so if you have enough PCI-E slots for 2 or 3 of these you won't be too far off 12 or 18GB/s. The storage size of each card is pretty impressive too.

    However, getting a hold of even a handful of these is going to be 5 figures at least. 220 is just ridiculous and I'd be surprised if anyone bought that many. It's really just a PR stunt at the end of the day.

    It's not a PR stunt, it's the way forward for high-bandwidth high-availability data systems. Fusion IO have been pushing the "lower-end" product that comes in at between 2 & 8 times the equivalent consumer products down 4x PCIe lanes to sql server people, & creating some very positive waves.

    just wonder how long it would last- especially carrying the amounts of data this thing would be used for

    What actually requires 1TB/s? Plus what is the point when rack systems can have RAM quantity in the TB's and wouldn't RAM still be a lot faster?

    SSDs are a replacement for HDDs. So in your rackmount systems you would still have a need for HDDs to store data, the RAM is used for temporary storage. With SSDs the data moves much faster.

    The film industry could certainly make use of this stuff and I guess any power house internet based sites like google or Facebook.

    Fb definitely needs these, although it could probably do with a new code base as well :s

    Even if one of these were used in a PCIex4 slot, that'd still be over 1GB/s.

    Want now!

    Yes this is impressive, but the question remains; would this be sufficient for the Mankz to transfer the ladies to redundant backup HDDs quick enough for it to be done within his lifetime?

    I was thinking it would be great to get 30gb for $800+ at this speed but 4TB I can not even think how much $.

    How much does the IoDrive 640GB cost right now... its very hard to find prices on the web... only found one European site who got them, but has anyone had any experience with them yet?

    http://ssdeurope.com/solid-state-drives-pciexpress-c-2_70.html

    the 640GB I think is around 18000 USD...

    Does anyone in the states have those to order online...? The big integrators ask a lot more than 18000...

    Thanks

    Sergey
