Capable of transfer speeds of up to 550MBps and IOPs random reads of 89,000, they are faster than consumer SSDs.
They will last an estimated 5+ years, be between 240-480GB and cost roughly $1.00 per GB.
Pre-order and read the full story.

going to have to seriously look at these when I build a new computer later this year, I've used SSDs on some work computers and used one to improve performance on my current (3 y/o) computer @ home and I'm 100% sold on SSDs going forward.

I'm thinking about setting up a 4k gaming rig later this year and I will be investing in a SSD and probably keep a 2-3 TB as a media storage.
I'm hoping SSDs and 4k TVs go down in price a bit because I would like dual monitors. :robothappy:

yea at least 2 monitors is a must imo.
