  1. OCZ took the opportunity at Computex 2010 to showcase its latest additions to its already broad solid-state drives lineup. Dubbed RevoDrive, this new product is designed to slip into a PCI Express x4 slot and employs two SandForce SF-1222 controllers in RAID mode for maximum performance -- up to 540MB/s reads and 530MB/s writes, as well as 75,000 IOPS. It's a compact version of last year's Z-Drive for high-performance gaming PCs and workstations.

    We'll have to see what OCZ considers to be 'affordable'. What the SSD market needs to realise is, they're still, and will be for years to come, in heavy competition with mechanical hard drives. If Techspot are interested, I'd like to see how well SSDs fare against a pair of 600GB Velociraptors on RAID. In terms of pricing, capacity, reliability and performance, I can see a vast majority of SSDs sitting in the corner, crying themselves to sleep in shame.

    Even though these items are quite expensive at the moment, they give me hope that soon, 1-3 years, these will be mainstream pushing old disc drives the way of crt monitors, and increasing overall computer performance.
  5. There is a dealer in Switzerland that has put a preliminary CHF614 and CHF1077 price on the Revodrive (drive not available yet): http://www.toppreise.ch/index.php?search=revodrive
