    An arm, a leg, and a child.

    Yup. I remember the days when a HDD had 1 MB of space and was doing good to move data at 10 KB/s.

    Thing is, files grow in size with the speed of hard drives so instead of throwing 1 MB files around on average, you'll be throwing 1 GB around. In the end, even though things get faster, they really don't seem it.

    Children are free to us men though. And we can sell the arms and legs of those children.


    Anyway, single SSD 150+MB/s and 24 required to get 2GB/s. Quite inefficient.

    Actually, the Space Shuttle is rather efficient. You try to lift 4.4 million pounds hundreds of miles off Earth without 2,409,265 million pounds of fuel.

    And Dan makes a good point: 2 GB/s for 24 drives isn't much to gawk at (only 83 MB/s per drive--not much more than a typical 7200 RPM can do).

    I didn't pay attention, but didn't he use port replicators to get that working?

    Inefficiency could very well have something to do with that...

    Now a PCI-X port with a nasty hot controller... See what its capable of then :)

    What I am thrown off by is he had to remove one of the 4870x2's do to he figured "used too much power" with 2... not 1, 2 1000 watt psu's...... According to my calculations, that system should have been fine on a single 1000 watt psu....

    If my computer used 2KW of power I doubt I could afford to run it!

    SSDs are only meant to take 0.5W under load so surely it should take significantly less than 2000w of power, although he may have needed it to have enough connectors?
