That sounds mighty impressive, but if you capitalize that B it turns into a somewhat less stunning figure of 768MB/s. Sequential read and write speeds are 500MB/s, while each can sustain a rate of 60,000 operations per second. That's a lot of I/O, and it's coming to gilded racks sometime in the first quarter of 2011.

I was just thinking of buying a sandforce SSD, Mushkin actually. Would be nice if they came out at the price of the Callisto.

Mushkin if you are listening, I will buy your new SATA III SSD with 120GBs for 300 bucks.

If not, they oh well. It was worth a shot.

I'm still holding off from getting a pair of SSDs for hardware RAID0. I do plan on getting one to replace my insanely slow 5400RPM in my laptop though.

These throughput figures are very interesting........hopefully it is matched by low power consumption.

Prices really are getting cheaper on SSDs. I help myself back a few weeks ago and it looks like a whole new wave of SSDs have hit newegg, with greater capacities for the previous price range I was checking.

Don't get RAID0, hardware or no hardware you're still better off by just getting the next size up, its usually around the same price and the speed feels the same, with TRIM support.
