The Future of SSD

RedShark News' Leo Waldock writes a piece on the history of Solid State Storage and why SSDs remain the future of storage as HDD wanes.

He writes, "When I first reviewed an 80GB Intel SSD in 2008 the price was £399, which worked out to £5 per Gigabyte. The low capacity meant it simply wasn't possible to build a decent gaming PC or workstation that ditched HDD in favour of SSD unless you did something daring with a bunch of SSD in RAID and spent about £2000 in the process. The capacity was too low, the price too high and reliability was suspect, however the potential was clear. Today I can buy a 1TB Crucial MX 200 for £273 (27p per GB), or a 960GB SanDisk Ultra II for £216 (23p per GB). And while those numbers don't compare all that well with a 4TB WD Blue drive at £133 (3p per GB) there is a significant part of the PC and laptop markets that can forget about spinning rust and instead rely on solid state storage."
