I seen that too. Obsolete already, damn!
From what Iíve been reading in reviews of single vraptorís, is that their as fast as a SSD already.
From Oversized Rooster and orcaphot results here, raid0 gets you another 60/70ish % improvement in speed.
I think SSD has still got a big climb up for desktop systems, given the raptorís SSD like speed, and 300GB capacity.
Technically I donít like the reliability of flash for this kind of application, and I suspect
manufactures are skewing the numbers by including their anticipated load leveling in the final mtbf. Thatís likely fine for sub-notebooks and the like though.
