    Would the 20GB SLC SSD be useful for a tablet? Maybe they have found a way to produce the whole unit for a decent price.

    Can't wait to see prices on that 20GB SSD, if it's affordable (£30~) it's going straight into my netbook.

    Is intel's development of the 3D transistor architecture going to at all affect their solid state drives? Pardon my ignorance.

    Yup, rumors are that the 20GB SLC drive is going to be used as a chache drive for the Z68 chipset boards, and frankly I'd be suprised if Intel does ship that SSD caching feature on most of its boards.

    Oh, and affordable, I doubt it. With SLC it is probalby going to be well over $2 a GB. I expect at minimum shipping price of $80 US, or on par with a cheap 32GB MLC drive. Probably not super fast as well, as that capacity means very limited number of channels to populate for the controller, even with SLC.

    That's what I'm really looking forward to!

    I've been dragging my feet on a new build with a 128GB SSD boot drive for months and months, (and months!) - I've decided to pull the trigger in May & just do it. The headline numbers for these are much better than the Crucial C300's, but I want to see if that holds up and translates into real-world performance.

    Can't wait! :)

    i would really like an ssd but i need to upgrade my pc first (its a socket 775)
    i need at least a 3-400GB ssd though and that with sandy bridge sounds awsome
