MSI's website states that all "SandForce-Driven" SSDs include a column for MSI, with model numbers for the upcoming SSDs "coming soon". MSI have dabbled in SSD's before, with their super-fast GT60/GT70 gaming notebooks that sport an MSI-designed SSD RAID solution.

 

This SSD RAID solution uses SanDisk-made mSATA SSDs in a striped RAID 0 array.

 

What are your thoughts on the move into SSDs? A natural progression of business for MSI? Do you think we'll see exciting stuff from the usual motherboard- and graphics card-maker?
