Because gaming is literally everything. An FX-8350 or FX-8320 beat an i5 clock for clock (ie. their competition) in nearly everything but gaming, plus as someone who just went from an FX-4170 to an i5 3570k and saw no major gaming performance difference...Well, most of the people here who talk about how AMD is much slower than Intel have no idea what they're going on about and are looking at pwetty graphs instead of actual gameplay.

EDIT: if they decide to sell SSDs.
No doubt Sandforce or maybe Marvel, as Plextor licensed the controller used in the M4.

Lets be honest, you wont notice the difference between a slow and a fast SSD anyway since they are fast no matter which you use.
This. I think it's funny when people talk about SSD performance as if it actually matters in this day and age...Go for reliability, price and size over performance every time. Those are areas you'll actually see the difference in.

Makes sense, actually..It would be dumb for them to release yet another Sandforce drive.
