PCI Express storage card faster than SSD

Need really, really fast data storage and accessibility? Perhaps the Fusion-io ioDrive is for you, Mr. Moneybags. It’s exactly what it sounds like, a PCI-E card with data storage capabilities. Who knew SSD’s would get derailed before they even got started?

The ioDrive has write speeds of up to 368 MB/s (MegaBytes) and read times of 473 MB/s. It uses NAND flash memory (same as SSD) and takes advantage of the PCI-E bus speed (instead of SATA, relatively slower). In comparison to SSD’s, it’s double the read speed and 5 times the write speed.

So what does it mean for you the home user? Cheaper SSDs in the future and faster response times from your favorite porn sites. Take a look here if you want to nerd out on the details.
