PhotoFast G-Monster-Promise PCIe SSD gets speed boost

We heard about the G-Monster PCIe SSD RAID card back in March and we thought it was pretty fast with a read and write speed of 750MB/s. But now PhotoFast has come up with yet another drive that blows the previous out of the water.

It’s called the G-Monster-Promise PCIe SSD and rather than a 750MB read/write speed, this one ponies up an impressive 1,000MB/s. And while this certainly isn’t the fastest available in the entire world, it’s still definitely worth paying attention to.

You’ll be able to get your hands on the G-Monster-Promise right now, though it will only be available in Japan. Sizes expect to range from 128GB worth of storage all the way up to 1TB. Pricing is high with the 128GB model going for the equivalent of $1,600, the 512GB model going for $2,000 and the 1TB model going for $4,500.
