Geeks at Samsung took 24 256GB SSD (Solid State Drives) and hooked them together into a monster RAID array. The results are very impressive indeed.
The setup could hit transfer speeds of over 2GBps. In real world terms this translates into:
- Being able to open ALL Microsoft Office apps in 0.5 seconds
- Open 53 programs installed on the system in 18 seconds
- Defrag the entire system in 3 seconds (that said, SSDs and SSD RAID arrays don't need defragging)
- Transfer a 700MB ripped DVD in 0.8 seconds
Pretty impressive stuff!
Take a look at the video below for all the action.
