SSD Awesomeness

Wow!!!!

 

We took 24 256GB Samsung MLC SSD’s and put them in RAID to make this awesome computer! See how we did it, and what the results were!
For more information on these drives, check outhttp://www.samsungssd.com.

Warning: This clip is a piece of Samsung marketing material.
Warning 2: It’s actually pretty fracking amazing, and it might change your view of computers.

Samsung techies linked 24 of the company’s 256GB SSD drives together in a RAID with the hopes of making the fast SSD drives even faster. The system actually reaches transfer speeds of 2GBps. What’s that much speed mean to you?

• All of Microsoft Office opens in .5 seconds.
• 53 programs from the test rig’s Start menu open in 18 seconds.
• The complete system defrags in about 3 seconds.

Basically, we all know that hard drives are holding other components in computers back, slowing down our day to day usage. But I’ll be honest in saying that I didn’t things were this bad. While almost no mortal could afford to build this amazing rig, suddenly that SATA3 technology isn’t looking so impressive.
