Micron 1GB/s SSD to be released in the near future

Micron 1GB/s SSD to be released in the near future

Well this is exciting news. Micron has come up with a new SSD that could actually break current records for internal storage and would be incredibly fast. This new storage would actually use two solid-state drives that have 16 data channels. This would make for a transfer speed of up to 1GB/second!

Call me impressed! Performance exceeds 200,000 input/output operations per second. It also requires that the current Serial ATA II 300MB/s bandwidth cap be released with a PCI Express. During a demo video, the SSDs are mounted on cards and these managed to top 800MB/s.
