We've just published a review on the OCZ IBIS 160Gb SSD with HSDL. It's currently the world's fastest SSD ever (Oct 2010). Here's a snip ...
What OCZ has done is to slap 2 x Sandforce controlled 80Gb SSDs sub-units (PCBs) and configured then in RAID 0 mode using a Silicon Image RAID controller. These PCBs are then housed in a 3.5" inch anodised Aluminum casing, and features OCZ's new proprietary HSDL (High Speed Data Link) interface. This new interface basically eliminates the existing I/O bottlenecks and take SSD technology to new levels of performance, with a max read speed up to 740MB/s and max write speed up to 690MB/s.
It's not your average everyday purchase. It's hugely expensive, especially when you consider that the total capacity of the drive is only 160Gb (150Gb usuable/formatted). So this means that only extreme high-end and enthusiast users who's got the money to burn, can really afford it.
