    Congratulations to that team of R+D, no problem if that is not available yet for consumers, we're still trying to move forward S-ATA3; probably when that SSD technology is available, SATA Express will be sort of mainstream.

    Its not like we are suffering from a lack of innovation in SSD technology, but like battery technology which actually does have an innovation shortage, I kinda don't care all that much until you prove that it actually will come to market. Which there is only one way to prove it will come to the market, you have to wait.
  4. Thanks, from R&D team! Z.

    About time. I said many times that SSD in current form are road to nowhere. NAND will hit the wall very soon as it reaches boundaries of it usefulness. I expected PCM to be fast, but it's even better than I thought.
