    Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of NAND Flash storage solutions, announces its RAIDDrive II Plus PCIe SSD!

    Super Talent's RAIDDrive II Plus is the next generation of PCIe SSDs developed by Super Talent. It delivers top of the line read/write speeds of up to 2600/3200 MB/s with the PCIe Gen.2 x8 lane host interface and utilizes a 1 GB onboard DDR2 SDRAM cache with ECC protection. The RAIDDrive II Plus houses eight discrete SATA SSDs and comes in a custom form factor measuring 231.5 x 94.0 x 20.6 mm.

    The RAIDDrive II Plus architecture also provides a redundant flash image for adapter availability as well as NVRAM for RAID configurations and a transaction log. There is a system status indicator through a global HDD activity/fault connector, an alarm buzzer, SMTP support for email notifications, and SNMP support for remote management.

    Wow just checked that out and it sounds great. At $1000 for 256Gb( 192 usable) still out of my price range.

    Yeah, if it is indeed ~$1000 USD for 256GB of SSD storage I would much rather opt for a ~1TB Samsung or Crucial SSD for ~$450 to ~$550 USD. Hell I would rather buy two or more ~1TB SSD units and run them in RAID 0.

    I'll wait until these are down to $300; my 840 pro is fast enough for all I do now, maybe in a couple years it will seem slow. The early adopter tax is just too high for this form factor.

    This product is targeted for people who want extremely fast storage but without the hassle of setting up their own raid,so you cant really compare it to "standard" SSD's.

    yea but the profit margin on this thing is nuts. 2-3k for a 480GB version? Please You could argue 1k but 2-3k? I thought at that price it would at least be SLC but it is still MLC. What i would dream of is a PCIe 4.0 with a 512GB DDR 4 ram disk with a 2-4 TB version of this. Windows and select programs load into the ramdisk and the rest run off of the PCIe drive. 35 GBps ramdisk with a 2-4TB mass storage mmmmmmmm They could easily make that with DDR4 and the 32GB* ram sticks...only need to find a way to fit 16 of them....could work :D

    Are they going to be able to reach 64GB with DDR4 or 32GB the max?
