Corsair P128 vs. Three Intel SSDs
High-tech products usually pass a few typical stages of development on their way to conquering the market. First, there appear pilot and small-series samples in which the manufacturing technology is being polished off, the characteristic traits are being defined and various ideas, both lucky and not, are being tested. Next goes the period of maturing when product models change one another very quickly, their functionality constantly improving and their childhood diseases getting cured. And then goes the mature period proper. It is when the technology is developing at a slower rate, resulting in a steady improvement of key characteristics. It is during this period that the manufacturers come up with alternative technologies that might lead to new type products. The maturity will eventually transform into a decline, and it is very important not to miss this moment. All such processes go on very quick in the PC hardware industry and everyone can easily name a few examples of such cyclic development. This was the case with floppy diskettes and data CDs. The same goes for CPUs with their ever-changing architectures.
And for the last couple of years we have been witnessing one more example of this cycle as a new product type – a Solid State Drive (SSD) – is coming to market. The newcomer is so aggressive that hard disk drives, although obviously at their prime now, are already not superior to it in some aspects. Early SSDs could only rival HDDs in a few parameters, but the latest SSD models with multi-channel controllers deliver such a high performance that not only the fastest of HDDs but even RAID arrays made out of them fail to equal!
