mobilenvidia Posted June 16, 2009 Report Share Posted June 16, 2009 Saw this over at HardwareCanucks Probably my next Lappy upgrade purchase is a SSD drive It appears that after decades of seeming stagnation, the storage sector is finally starting to shift gears. For the first time in computer history the lowly storage device is starting to mature at a rate which destroys Moore's Law. This change in pace is not happening in the regular spindle based Hard Disk Drives (though one could argue that the density increases has been just as fast as CPU speed increases); rather, it is happening in the Solid State Device sector. The SSDs of just a few months ago are already becoming mundane in their speeds and capacities and there is already a whole new generation set to supersede anything we have seen before. Will this increase in speed AND size continue on an annual or semi-annual basis? If it does, it will most likely be more chaotic than the ATI / Nvidia ?war? or the AMD / Intel one. While those industries have it down to a ?tick-tock? cycle it appears the SSD marketplace is still finding its legs and is actually more cut throat than ever.
