Fusion-io ioXtreme PCIe SSD gets reviewed

Fusion-io ioXtreme PCIe SSD gets reviewed

| Storage News | Posted: Nov 17, 2009 3:56 pm

I am a computer enthusiast like most of you are who read TweakTown. I want my machine to be as fast as possible, but I am not yet willing to spend the money it takes to get an SSD. They are still too expensive and offer too little storage capacity for my tastes. If you are the damn the cost type of enthusiast HotHardware has reviewed the Fusion-io ioXtreme PCI Express SSD.

The crux of the review is that the thing is very fast and very expensive. The 80GB version sells for $895. All I can say is at that price it had better come with a topless hottie to bring me more Cheetos when I run out.

 

HotHardware reports that the SSD produced consistent 700MB/sec reads and 300MB/sec writes. The big catch is that right now it's not bootable. However, a fix for that issue is said to be incoming. Hit the link below for the full review.
