Fusion-io ioDrive Duo is the Worlds Fastest SSD

Illustration for article titled Fusion-io ioDrive Duo is the Worlds Fastest SSD

Fusion-io's original ioDrive was stupid fast, but the next generation makes even that look pathetic. Try 1.5GB sustained read speeds and 1.4GB sustained write speeds. Yeah, let that sink in for a minute.


Fusion-io has also blown the slot capacity of their previous model out of the water with versions of the PCI Express Duo available in 160GB, 320GB, 640GB and 1.28TB sizes. Three of the four versions will be available starting in April with the 1.28GB version slated for the second half of 2009. If you are wondering how much it will cost, that probably means you cant afford it. Specifics have not been made available, but we are talking tens of thousands of dollars on the high end here.

If you recognize Fusion-io, it's the company Woz just joined as Chief Scientist. Since he just joined, we doubt he had anything to do with the ioDrive's inception and production, but he'll most likely have a hand in doing their upcoming products. [Fusion-io via Hot Hardware]



Imagine how fast my 386SX will run with this bad boy in it! Well, ignoring the slot problem, the bus speed problem, the slow memory, the processor incapable of accessing that much information that quickly, and the fact that the power supply died in that thing years ago. Other than that - it would be amazing.
