    I think we're entering another golden age. Soon SSD will be a standard. The new DX11 cards that will hopefully live up to the hype. Affordable next gen CPU/mobo upgrades. Not forgetting 3D and Falcon.

    We're in for some treats in the next 12 months.

    Mmmmm

    They should be concentrating on price and performance.

    Even for the small size, they are big enough for most OS installs, I would like to see the average performance of SSD's in general meet the Intel and OCZ drives before I purchase one for each new computer however.

    62GB capacity? Strange choice.

    Possibly 64GB with 2GB 'spare' for when cells start to degrade? I thought that was what the 60GB drives were - 64GB ones with a little spare. Correct me if I'm wrong. :)

    ...

    These look rather nice.

    Now see if four of 'em and a little controller can be crammed inside a normal 2.5" case, and have ridiculous read/write speeds and decent capacity! :D

    When will we see these being attached direct to the motherboard? What would be the increase removeing a SATA cable from the mix?

    I can also think of the Airflow benefits it would bring.

    Being able to install SSD's in a similar way to a RAM module would be very cool

    hmmm personally I'd like them to get the price down and the performance issues out of the way before I'll plunk down cash specifically for one

    i think now were gona get motherboard manufacturers come to a conclusion now to try what some people have stated! buying the drive and have it directly connect to the board no wires approach. but you have to consider that you would only be able to connect possibaly a few to the board due to having enough space to do this and still have SATA connectors for extra space! ( would that be a bad thing?) if you had 3 connected to the board and had raid setup = fast OS / games! and you could use the extra SATA's space for pic's, music, video ect... so in reality speed on the OS would realy be sufficiant to the grade of computing power! i would like to see this happen for the next generation of motherboards! why just keep it for netbooks/notebooks.....? i do think tho for some people out there they are going to wonder about bottlenecking on this but if you could make a new controler for this with emense speed i do think the technology could realy take off! it would be just the price to consider! £300 for this brand new board (I DONT THINK SO)
