Finally, next year the SATA Express standard is being released, a SATA standard over a PCIe connection. There will be a new generation of SSDs using this interface, and the current Revo drives are not compatible, and will be history.
I cant wait for it!

No, the speeds igor posted are from PCIe 2.0 x4. PCIe 2.0 x1 would only allow around 400MB/s, not the 700.

So the load time for games will only be slightly faster? If so, am I good to go with 2 840 Pros?[/quote]Pros in RAID 0 is what I'd do if I wanted to waste some cash.
However, have you used an SSD before...SSD -> HDD is night and day already, running a RAID 0 array of SSDs is only marginally faster.
