Fusion-io's Ultra-Fast PCI-E Solid-State Disk Tested
From our front-page news:
This past October, I linked to a story about a brand-new SSD that didn't only raise the bar where performance was concerned, but dropped some jaws along the way. The company is Fusion-io, and their product is an SSD that bypasses the S-ATA bus entirely, and instead utilizes the available PCI-Express bandwidth. So, on its PCI-E 4x card sits either 80GB, 160GB or 320GB worth of SLC chips, and speeds that are truly mind-blowing.You'll have to decide on your own how this thing earned itself an Editor's Choice and a 97% rating for "Value for Money".

Yeah, I'd wonder about that value for money award, unless their awards are meant to be humorous.
Unfortunately I don't read Tweaktown much anymore. One to many erroneous articles that weren't fully hashed out.
