FMS 2012 - HGST today demonstrated their new 12Gb/s SAS Enterprise SSDs. These are the first 12Gb/s SSDs in existence, and they are in an unbranded case.

We can see the performance improvement between a current tech 6Gb/s SSD, which is pulling down 547 MB/s in sequential read, and the 12Gb/s SSD that is providing 995 MB/s from one device! Nearly 1GB/s of sequential speed from a single SSD is simply unheard of with today's interface.

The 6Gb/s, in the foreground, and the 12Gb/s SSD are both of similar size, so the performance increase does not involve a larger device.
