OK, send the Warpdrive to me immediately for further long term testing. I'll compare it to one of my RLL drives.

Good webcast again. I really like the warpdrive idea even though it's gonna have to be like a geek dream for most of us. 11 thousand bucks is a hefty, lofty, price to pay for something that's 300GB of space.

Rofl; I think they should stick the warp drive in the next contest rig, along with the two 6850's Marco tested and some SandyBridge (Open Clock) goodness. I know I am dreaming here, but it is the only chance I figure I might ever be able to personally experience that MEGA SSD.

Well, it's definitely nice to play with the latest toys. It's why we do what we do here for sure, for the love of the tech. However, a product like this is generally maintained in a test environment for future reference testing/numbers etc.

Nice Intro... Iyaz always cracks me up !!

..WarpDrive, Warp Speed, Warp Price!

I'll be able to afford it in a couple of "Light Years"

Iyaz rocks and yeah, Inspector, I've seen more than a few "get quit" in my day... Fairly common occurrence in semiconductors for sure. Fortunately I was never on the other side of the deal on that.
