We've spent a lot of time talking about the high end this year and neglected the mainstream market a bit. There are a couple of reasons for this. The first is the high end products are just so freaking cool! The second really has to do with the state of the current mainstream SSDs on the market.
The mainstream market is having a bit of an identity crisis right now. Products like the Kingston V100+ and Patriot Torqx 2 are shipping with mainstream performance, but still carry high end product prices. When you're spending 300 Dollars on a 120-128GB drive, there isn't a reason to buy a mainstream performance drive when you can buy the best for the same amount of money.
SandForce and the Team SandForce partners have wrecked the entire pricing scheme foundation and are in the process of rebuilding it how they see fit. That means we are going to see these SF-1200 drives sell for 200 USD or less in 120GB capacity and the SF-2200 drives sell for 250 to 300 USD. That doesn't leave a lot of room for drives with controllers from JMicron, Phison, Toshiba, Samsung or Intel.
ATTO Baseline Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34
ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.
We've been looking at ATTO result images like this since January 2010 with 280MB/s read and over 270MB/s write depending on which motherboard and drive package you are using. This is the pentacle of SATA 3G performance; you can't get any better.
