Default Fatal1ty Releases ioXtreme Card by Fusion-io

Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, the world’s best known PC gamer, and Fusion-io join up at the Fatal1ty E3 booth to launch the ioXtreme, a solid state storage device for high-performance PCs and workstations using 64 bit operating systems. The ioXtreme eliminates application latency, delivering the kind of storage performance once limited to the world’s fastest supercomputers.


Drawing from Fusion-io’s industry-leading solid-state technologies, the ioXtreme is a PCI Express card that sits on the system bus filling the performance gap between RAM and disk drives. It adds 80 GB of non-volatile capacity, exponentially accelerating input and output, including file access, and improving application performance dramatically.

Sorry Jonathan but I hardly doubt that it will sell , that price is a so no no for most gamers...

"Scheduled for release in July at a list price of $895"

This nifty card has the same cost as many gamers rigs out there...

we're talking high end workstation gaming rigs
no game needs this much IO, it won't improve FPS much either

INTEL CORE i7 940 €544
2x MSI N285GTX-T2D1GB-OC €678
6Gb DDR3 €130
Other stuff for pc ~ €400 (case, psu, dvd, cooling, hdd, ...)
€1752

$900 is still a lot, even in a high-end gaming rig. Only in the highest end gaming rig (Core i7 extreme + 3x GT295 which costs rougly €3000) it starts to make sens, but it's still a lot for only 80Gb.

And as you already mentioned, no game needs that much IO, it'll only improve load times and maybe even lower the FPS (high IO = more CPU power needed)

Why would you buy a Core i7 Wutske?

E8400/HD4890/4Gb DDR2/P45 Mobo is all you need
definitely less than than half of what you propose and if it's 5% slower it will be a lot.

that's what a high end workstation gaming rig consists of.
Anyway, even such an expensive computer doesn't justify the need for a $900 SSD

I dunno, I game quite a bit and I have no issues with my Q9450/EP45-UD3P/GTX 260.

I'm personally sticking with this setup til I see some boards with Sata 3 and USB 3 hit mainstream.

only at 1920x1200 Crysis Warhead and 2560x1600 AA enabled do you need a more powerful VGA to get the most out of your gaming experience.

But if you want to stress your hardware, I've found Oblivion with a ton of visual enhancement mods which make the game simply gorgeous to be quite taxing, 1920x1200 4xAA/16xAF I'm seeing min FPS of 10-15 average 20-25fps , this with a Geforce 9800 GTX. GTX 260 will do better of course, but still not above 60fps

Ah well, some people just have too much money on their hands and spend it on something they don't need .
Having mind-end hardware is nowadays powerfull engouh for gaming with high settings.
