Any clue on the price?

My question is, how do they get around the inherent limitation in the number of writes an SSD can accept to a bit before it's unusable?

In a normal PC it's around 10,000 writes to the same sector, but that's probably not going to happen in the lifetime of the computer. But on a server, if I am using this for my enterprise MS SQL running full bore, I will do millions of reads and writes every single day. Did they also boost that long with the speed? If not, then this is a useless tech for the enterprise. (Although I would love to have it running my DBs!)

Like the specs of a supercomputer, it's fun to hear about the latest and greatest bleeding edge tech, but not much use for most people. Unless you are running applications that CONSTANTLY need to do read/write functions, this would be worthless to most people. On the other hand a company that runs massive databases that constantly update needs one of these... If only my company would spring for one on our Network...

The only usage scenario I can think of is multiple streams of uncompressed 4k video @ 60fps w/ 4:4:4 color. In that case, the data could bottleneck ethernet or SATA, and make it impossible to stream the video correctly. A local PCI-based ssd solution like this could be a boon if you had to edit 3 or 4 streams of that at once. The price will be stratospheric though. I'm willing to bet the 1.6TB version is more than an average workstation, and prohibitively expensive for most companies or businesses.

You'll also need a board w/ plenty of spare PCI-E ** x16 ** slots (at least judging from the pic)... Would you sacrifice a GPU to run this?

No, as the performance gained from more GPUs would benefit me a lot more than more fast storage. Ideally I could have both, but as it stands I can touch SATA 6 speeds, and I don't think more speed or IOPS is worth it.

With the performance of today's GPU's, yes I would. Not only are the single GPU cards fast, the availability of dual chip GPU's would negate the need for a second GPU card, at least for me. That would open a slot for that memory card.

but is it better than a RAM disk????

I could actually make use of this....

All things being equal and money is no object, I'd take a few off their hands!

Let's see I would need 4 of them to set up RAID 5 right? Hmmm :-)

Why is MaxPC afraid to ask the price of a product. Are you becoming Chicken PC or what. Now go and find that price, your readers demand it.

I was being somewhat facetious, and am actually waiting to hear back from RunCore on the price.

I too was being somewhat facetious.

I remember Runcore announcing that SSD that securely erases itself at the press of a hardware button.

I'm sure Kylin will be well at home in someone's server.
