I heard something else about software that could be easilly pushed onto SSD's to make them faster innately, not sure what is happening with that. But last I checked, its conditions were very specific, so who knows.
The 850 pro......dayum, 2x the price for the same amount of storage as its 840 brother, and almost 4x that of budget SSD competitors of the same amount.
The improvements seem to be at around 15% for twice the price. It's market is going to be small at first, but I applaud it.
It is, part of the modern capitalist system that is. More expensive units, with better performance as an incentive, and then the price goes down as the market grows and ages.
Me Gusta. I won't be buying that, but its improvements as....pretty much the fastest, is going to help out the market a lot. ESPECIALLY, against the growind addoption of pcie SSD's with massive performance
I don't know what to cheer for. But e-PCIE is very nice, especially in laptops that are using it such as the MBP's. That is BLAZING!
