    My interpretation NAND is going to be used as L2 cache being slower and cheaper than existing cache that HDD has and noticeable faster than HDD speed it self.
    SSD being expensive this sound like a nice idea.

    ...on an Adaptec or LSI controller which can use full SSD's as a cache for the array!

    Including the 256MB or 512MB that most of their models includes, Superfetch, and ReadyBoost, what are we up to storage cache-wise? 6 levels??

    A little more info was given here. I'll wait for reviews, but it looks like it could be a winner.
