Quote:
Within the next year, Micron Technology Inc. expects to bring to market a high-end solid-state disk drive that could achieve 1GB/sec. throughput, according to a company executive. The transfer speed is four times that offered by Intel Corp.'s newest SSD, the X25-E.

Yeah, not directly useful to us. But since we're pioneering the use of SSD's in mainstream computers, I felt it may still be of interest to us.

Agreed. Probably exploits parallelism in some fashion that currently requires a lot of chips, so not immediately relevant. I'll bet that eventually this technology shrinks down to the chip level though...
