Seagate noted that its 12 Gb/s implementation is "fully compatible with controllers and other technologies from PMC-Sierra and LSI." The company expects the 12Gb/s SAS standard to be finalized by the end of this year. First drives will be available sometime in 2013, while volume availability is predicted for H2 2013.

As DraXxus says 12Gb/s = 1.5GB/s not 12GB/s but still incredibly fast.

This is SAS though... it does everything that SATA does plus more (longer runs, easier diagnostics, more drives)

Won't have any impact....

NAND prices are the primary component of SSD prices.
