*looks shiftily around* I think this is the right forum...

Micron has demonstrated potential read speeds of over 1GB/sec on its latest Washington SSDs, which are mounted on PCI-E cards.

In terms of raw bandwidth figures, Jeddeloh says that one drive can read at around 800MB/sec, while a pair of cards can read at 1GB/sec.

He also makes some interesting claims about the cards? speed in random write tests, which are still slower than the read tests, but a lot quicker than current SSDs, with a single SSD card apparently managing 80,000 IOPS and a pair of cards handling between 150,000 and 160,000 IOPS.

Micron says that it plans ?wide availability? of the product in 2010, but that it?s going to be targeted at enterprise customers first.

Read expensive but fast...

That looks great on the testbed is not very practical. The management technique when adapted to an enterprise packaged solution with SAS-2 connectors will be very nice, however.
