Micron touted its super-fast RealSSD drives with 250MBps speed a few months back, but now its demonstrated a tech that'll blow them out of the water: 1GBps transfer rates. It's a bit cheaty since it uses two SSDs for a total of 16 data channels to access the flash memory, but that does give it a 200,000 input/output operations per second speed. And that's too fast for SATA II's bandwidth cap, so Micron had to use PCI Express. It's a technology demonstrator, but Micron apparently plans to commercialize it "soon". [Electronista]

We have come a long way since the Commodore 1541 days. We can forgive the Micron demonstration involving their own take on the "FastLoad" cartridge.
