My "dream" PC

Who hasn't gotten into a bit of a competition bragging about their PC system's superiority over another? I know that I've gotten into a few "pissing" contests with friends after purchasing a new PC or after making substantial modifications. Again who hasn't? Most people that I know have a competitive spirit or nature. It's only natural to say that "my system is faster than yours" when it merits it.

A friend of mine sent me a link to a vid that left me drooling -- it's the ultimate system! This is one fast PC. Think 2GB per second!

Don't get me wrong, that is fast. But, it's running Vista. With something a bit faster, like Windows 7, or Gentoo Linux (the user compiles it specifically for their hardware, so basically as close to optimal as you get), it would probably be faster. Not by much, but still...

And unless it was used as a server, I can't really imagine much that would really need the full 2GB a second memory read write speed. As well as all the processor power needed to make sense of it. Oh, for gaming that load speed would be nice, but since no one else would be running at that speed, you would have to wait for everyone else if you were doing something multiplayer.

Have that beat. 20 gig a sec....
It skips the slow SATA interface and uses PCI express. Now imagine if you created a RAID of ioDrive cards like in the video....
The cool thing about SSD tech is that they will be common and inexpensive in a few years.

ioDrive Duo Product Details

The following specifications describe the physical and performance characteristics of the ioDrive Duo.

Based on PCI Express x8 or PCI Express 2.0 x4 standards, which can sustain up to 20 gigabits per-second (Gbytes/sec) of raw throughput, the ioDrive Duo has more than enough bandwidth to obtain industry-leading performance from a single card. The ioDrive Duo can easily sustain 1.5 Gbytes/sec of read bandwidth and nearly 200,000 read IOPS. Its performance metrics are as follows:

• Sustained read bandwidth: 1500 MB/sec (32k packet size)
• Sustained write bandwidth: 1400 MB/sec (32k packet size)
• Read IOPS: 186,000 (4k packet size)
• Write IOPS: 167,000 (4k packet size)
• Latency < 50 µsec

The ioDrive Duo offers unmatched solid-state protection for data integrity and reliability with triple redundancy for a single storage component.

• Multi-bit error detection and correction
• Patent-pending Flashback protection, offering chip-level N+1 redundancy and on-board self-healing so that no servicing is required
• Optional RAID-1 mirroring between two ioMemory modules on the same ioDrive Duo, offering complete redundancy on a single PCIe card

The ioDrive Duo comes in the following capacities:

• 160 Gbytes
• 320 Gbytes
• 640 Gbytes
• 1.28 TB (second half of 2009)

The ioDrive Duo will be available in April 2009. To find out more about how this and Fusion-io’s other enterprise solid-state storage products can benefit your organization, please visit

That iodrive thing could make booting faster than your monitor can come on!!!

If we continue in this direction with faster and faster storage will RAM become the bottleneck therefor becoming obsolete? just a question but it is fun to think about
