Intel X25-M Solid State Drive
@ Hot Hardware
@ PC Perspective
@ The Tech Report
intel 80GB X25-M 595$ / 80 GB = 7.4375 $ per GB
OCZ 64GB 259$ / 64 GB = 4.046875 $ per GB
what's better 1 intel or 2 ocz raid0
That would be very dependant on your raid controller. Those kind of speeds don't handle standard onboard raid very well. If you get a nice pci-e card though, the situation changes a lot.
one guy made a mini review with 2 OCZ Core Series SSD 32GB RAID0 and Asus Maximus Formula (ICH9 HDD controller)
ssd's currently have great read speeds, but slower write speeds than drives like WDSE16 640gb, Samsung F1 750GB , Seagate 720.11
i should really get into RAID HDD setups...im too poor.
I'm not sure, but I think they come with many problems too .
Me thinks it's too early for these things to be worthwile.
In a couple of years, maybe.
Only the X-25E is going to utilize SLC chips, that sucks.
I think this is actually going to work out great with intel getting in on the action, more competition = lower prices and better products.
Don't think SSD's are pratical at this time for any application other than a laptop. Will be sticking with my V-Raptors for a few more years, or at least untill drive capacity goes up and prices come down.
