Fusion-io is launching a new “Fatal1ty” branded product as they deliver an enthusiast-oriented PCI Express solid state drive. The ioXtreme SSD will make use of the PCI-E x4 interface and bear a non-volatile 80GB capacity based on MLC NAND technology.


It is reported that the card boasts an HD Tach of 520MB/s, which effectively doubles the score of the almighty Intel’s X25-M 80GB – the best drive in our recent SSD roundup. The card’s MTBF is estimated at over 2 million hours and is planned to start shipping next month for $895.
