the onboard cache and the use of SLC memory would already reduce that problem


It probably costs as much as a luxury car with 1 TB, is it at least bootable?

This uses MLC, not SLC. According to the page, it is bootable.

There is no mention of controller type which is the big question here... but honestly no flash memory is completely free of the slowdown effect.

don't see why not, OCZ Z-Drive is also bootable, they are using RAID cards, so bootable all the way

This technology is interesting.. We have been working with the Fusion IO card here at work and it smokes everything else we have.. We are sending back our older 160gb model for the new 640gb model, which retails for roughly $20k.. I wonder what the price is on this 1TB card..

$1500 I think, that's the price of raid card, and 4xMLC 256GB SSDs approx

This means OCZ is too late to the market, and perhaps even that they lent (copied ?) the technology from this firm.

Will be interesting to watch how this plays out.
