A Motherboard should be just a Top of the Line NVidia Card with built in SSD Boot drive on the same PCIe Bus Reading / Writing 800MB/sec or better with a Slot for CPU And Ram.

 

Screw the seperate Slot for a VideoCard

The VideoCard should be the Motherboard with whatever CPU it requires for Gaming 24hrs a day!

There is a standard that MS came up with when it was developing Windows Vista that allows for a slot on the motherboard that you would put flash memory into and Windows Vista will store all of the startup apps on this flash memory card increasing the speed of the boot process to almost instantaneous. However at the time flash memory was still very slow and expensive and it never did catch on. Another standard that did catch on to a small degree is ReadyBoost that uses a USB memory key a high speed one I might add kinda stores data that gets used alot to increase the performance of your Windows. It works to a small degree nothing to brag about and it doesn't speed up gaming at all.

 

But what you describe above is a palmtop computer or a PDA. The bad thing is that it's not customizable and not upgradable so it's like a laptop.

What Really Matters in an SSD is SPEED!

Those wanting Storage Capacity are using Huge Hard Drives for Content Only and use SuperFast SSD's only for their Boot Drives!

 

If OCZ would consider Keeping Their Fastest SSD's in 16GB sizes and up, we could ALL enjoy the Fastest Boot Drives on Earth and we could ALL afford them!

 

If they choose to market only larger SSD's in the Fastest Formats, we will be Very Unhappy as only the Rich can afford them.

 

REAL profit comes from marketing to the masses, not just the super rich!

You know man I really don't care how long it takes to boot my computer so long as my Windows Experience is speedy and my games are awesomely fast. You are suggesting that Windows go on the super fast small SSD and that all your games go on the Dopey slow HDD's what's the point windows is going to be fast but all your music and games and everything else is going to be slow.

so you want them to sell a full 2.5 inch SSD HDD withthe capacity of a thumb drive?

I agree, but wouldn't it be great if the prices came down enough that all could afford such a drive? XD

 

That won't happen anytime soon, though, and that's probably wishful thinking. Just put two fast HDDs in a RAID 0 with some imaging backup software and you'll have very near the performance of SSDs (with even better write performance! :D)

What matters in a HDD besides speed is storage capacity. What is the capacity of these drives. Won't do me any good to get an expensive SSD if I cannot even install Windows on it because the drive is too small.

The article states it will be higher speed AND higher capacity than Intel's current SSDs. So expect somehwhere above 80GB....probably about 128 or so.

You have to agree that SSD's just aren't worth it yet to get one for normal folks. For those army issue hard laptops yeah it'll work great but for gamers and day to day computing and even with laptops and netbooks the SSD is an unecessary expensive option especially since HDD's are cheaper and have a really large capacity in the 500Gb range last time I checked for laptop storage that is.
