Yeah... Intel's kinda been fairly lackluster on their ssd's even after their big talk a year or two ago of how they were going to change the face of ssd's and half the costs once they get production up.

Still kinda amazed SSD prices haven't lowered more towards the sub $1/gb mark for the more speedy premium drives ever since normal HDD's jumped up last year. Would have thought they would flourish a lot more; considering I have a lot of friends who have jumped on the ssd bandwagon after the floods.

I've had SSD manufacturers tell me that now that the 6Gb/s SATA bus is pretty close to saturated already, they're going to stop chasing performance and start chasing capacity and price/GB. Intel and Micron's upcoming 20nm NAND will be able to cram in eight 128Gb NAND dies per module and should bring price down in the second half of the year. I'm excited for that.
