Angelbird’s PCIe-based SSD: it’s real, it’s shipping, it’s 800MB/s
“Remember that 1GB/s PCIe SSD system from Angelbird we covered a year ago? Well, the company just let us know it’s finally available. The performance claims are more modest than we saw in the beta phase, but we’re not distraught: the new benchmark is 800MB/s reads and 750MB/s writes, achieved with a $3000 setup including four 240GB SSD modules mounted on a Wings PCI-e card with a 32GB SSD built-in. Need to hold something back for groceries? You can’t reduce the number of SSDs without slowing everything down, but four 60GB drives on the cheapest Wings Lite PCIe card ought to satisfy most thrill seekers for just under a grand. We hope Smart Modular is paying attention.
