    At the moment I really don't see the point in overclocking SSD's ,they are already almost instant in whatever they do and I don't think anyone would notice any tangible benefit in overclocking them. Just my 10c !

    Given how easy it is to kill an SSD is it really going to be worth overclocking it if there's a good chance you'll end up bricking your pride and joy? I think not, I know I wouldn't want to.

    Agree with you both.

    I cannot see there being really any performance benefit and I also don't see the point in risking bricking the drive.

    Yeah, while interesting I can't see it currently offering any real world benefits outside of benching.

    ^Lol^ Seems a bit of a gimmick to me, why don't they just release SSD's that are already as fast as their competition?

    Hmmm. This sounds more to me like Intel, who've not got any point of differentiation for their SSD product, trying to appeal to the high end demographics, and get them to pay for their "premium" product.

    The drives aren't the best or fastest on the market, so they'll try and appeal to those with the deepest pockets.

    Gimmick!

    I still want 1GB/s on single SSD. I have more than 2GB/s now, but I use 3 of them for it.

    Isn't 1GB/s impossible on a SATA 3 connection ? i thought SATA 3 max was 0.6GB/s - overheads

    SATA Express right now!

    20% would means ~660MB/s max, but SATA 3 can't do it.

    I used to have 2x SSDs in RAID0... easily hit, or exceeded 1GB/sec


    I'd be more concerned with data integrity though... overclocking a SSD... Hmmm... no thanks.

    Yea i know its possible to get higher speeds with RAID, its why i said SATA 3 connection
    In theory a RAID0 on SATA 3 could get 1.2GB/s minus any overheads.

    But for a single drive, i thought the max was 0.6GB/s minus any overheads.
    For faster single drive speed, as Gradius said SATA Express right now :rock:
