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!
