How many times did you get angry, cause computer works too slow and hard drive reads data so loud, that you cant really focus anymore? Starting even simple program takes so much time, that you can already go for another cup of coffe. Later working in the program with countinous lags and unexpected pauses, so system could read bytes from slow hdd, all this gives you chest pains. Today you can get rid of all this and do everything much faster and really smoothly. You can finish your work sooner and go to your family or meet with friends. Today new era starts, cause Mach Xtreme Express drives enters the european market with speed from the future. Even the latest SATA III standard (up to 6 Gbps) is too slow for them, so the disks can be only connected directly to mainboard through PCI-Express 2.0 x2 type.



Mach Xtreme Express can read data with breakneck speed of 850 Megabytes (6800 megabits) and write data at a rata of 800 Megabyte (6400 megabits) per second. Maximum time for data access is 0.1 miliseconds, which means that all the bytes in those fast drives would be immediately available to the CPU or GPU. There will be no more so-called bottleneck effect and you will be able to use the power of your PC to the fullest. Cause really, what is the use from a fast graphic card, when the files of hundreds textures are still not loaded from slow HDD?

Mach Xtreme Express are available in four sizes - 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1024 GB. Very important feature of them is that they don't require any drivers or additional configuration software. Just plug and play. This means that no matter what operating system is on your PC, you can be absolutely sure that when you connect the drive to your computer, everything will work fast and smooth without any compatibility problems.

In the package you will find also additional PCIe low profile blade, so this extremely fast drives can be also installed in media center or HTPC systems, for example to record the match of your favorite team when you are away and all in Full HD resolution without any lossy compression.

So already being limited by SATA 6Gbps wasn't bad enough for Mach Xtreme? Now they are further limited by the PCI-E x2 interface and the third party SATA controller. And it looks like they do suffer quite a bit from it going by those specs. And that price....dear god no. Not cool MX. Not cool at all.

Agreed, we're not in the 90s, IMO current HDD's are reasonably fast and not THAT noisy as stated, and the prices are just :nutkick:

Plus they say SATA 3 is too slow and yet from the picture I only see 2 caseless SSD's connected via SATA > PCIe converter

[size=-5] not that i know much about PCIe SSD's [/size]

That should have at least 4 PCI-E lanes on that card. :confused:

:confused: Each lane of PCIe 3.0 is 8GT/s, 985MB/s. Two lanes is easily 3 times the bandwidth of SATA 3.

Edit: scratch that. I didn't read it was PCIe 2.0.

Typo on the price between 128 and 256? I mean, I know higher capacity offered better value per gb... but that makes no sense.
