Computex 2014 - One of the more impressive, and very surprising things to see at Computex this year was seeing G.Skill re-enter the SSD game with the amazingly fast Phoenix Blade series of SSDs.

G.Skill's new set of flash is based on the PCI Express 2.0 x8 bus, and comes in two sizes: 480GB and 960GB. The 960GB model is capable of sequential reads of up to 1800MB/sec, or 1.8GB/sec while the sequential writes are being pushed up to a huge 1100MB/sec, or 1.1GB/sec. 4KB Random IOPS are hitting 230K, which is impressive. I definitely need a few of these in my life!
