    I'll wait for reviews but from what I can see the major difference are a couple more circuits on the top left.
    SSD is not an option for me at the moment but I think it'll become one before Christmas.

    That's not a picture of the 612 sorry - it's the old 602. I'll change the caption.

    Any idea on what intel's controlloer cost? For comparison reasons only.
    So this controller will command a wider range of memory, and fixes the stuttering, but how much faster should it be? Am looking for an educated guess here, as I don't have an ssd yet, but the ocz review last week(?) has me chomping at the bit for a couple of the smaller size ones. I just don't want to shell out the "hard earned cash" on it if replacements are coming in less than a year that fixes the bugs and improves the price per Gb.

    I was wondering why they looked almost identical.

    Thanks for pointing that out, Bindi. :thumb:

    I just hope that the dropping cost of SSDs will someday soon (christmas?) bring them down to the point of being somewhat competitive with HDDs. The less problems the better.
