    They key question is "How much?" Looks awesome though, a boot drive capable of such insane read/writes would rock. :D

    Looks promising, if they can deliver (and at a semi-reasonable price).

    I don't think intel will kill them, its good news, competition just forces other companies to do better :), things like this will definitely help lower the prices of SSD's

    SSD prices are currently a big ask for most people to foke out
    They will need to come down to somewere along hte £100 mark to start been viable.( 32gb version)
    Servers use alot of harddisks to get hte storage they need. (repeating it with ssd drives will cost the earth ) 4700 ssd drives at 32gb version to replicate a 300 teribite server. Which at aprox price of £200 is £940000 ouch.

    As a company we get a 1tb hard disk for aprox £40 ( theres no vat tax ect ) ( 12 grand ish. Instead of 940k hmm ) not a hard choice

    for companys price needs to be close to £50 a drive. to even make it financially viable.

    I hope MS do it but i dont think it will. SSD is still way to expensive. And very difficult to mass produce in the quantitys a big company needs.
