Windows 7: SSD's already at 1TB

SSD's already at 1TB

SSD's are already up to 1TB. Article here. Can't believe that already the prices are starting to drop for these and boy they are fast, forget about the WD VelociRaptor already comparable size and price

So far, the typical SSD has been smaller in capacity, such as the 120GB SSD launched by SanDisk on Friday. That SSD costs around £165.

I want one.

I want three

Maybe in three years time when it's actually affordable

They'll be giving them away with packets of cornflakes in 3 years, the way tech is fast fowarding now.

That's good to see they have come along so far so quickly, i can't beleive they are at 1TB already, I want one too!! The next step will be to incorporate the system RAM into the same device and then we can say goodbye to the page file and have even lower latency.

It makes you wonder why they haven't already

Great to see things with no moving parts replacing older stuff, pendrives replaced diskettes, now these SSD could replace harddrives, and if pendrives are cheaper and cheaper you could replace dvd drives with them , at least for the pc. The only moving part left would be the coolers, but i'm sure something will come up to get rid of that too.

Well this should help to remove all the other moving parts.


Extending the limits of air cooling with thermoelectrically enhanced heat sinks
Bierschenk, J.; Johnson, D.
Thermal and Thermomechanical Phenomena in Electronic Systems, 2004. ITHERM apos;04. The Ninth Intersociety Conference on
Volume , Issue , 1-4 June 2004 Page(s): 679 - 684 Vol.1

Summary: The prospects of using thermoelectric coolers (TECs) as a means to enhance heat sink performance and extend the limits of air cooling for electronics has considerable appeal when one considers the alternatives of liquid cooling. Historical analyses of TECs for electronics cooling only considered "off-the-shelf" TECs, resulting in poor performance predictions and in many cases system performance that was better without the TEC. This poor performance has been taken as typical and hopes of improved performance tied only to new, more efficient bulk thermoelectric materials and future thin film thermoelectric material formats. This paper demonstrates the results possible when today's best bulk thermoelectric materials are utilized in optimum TEC designs eliminating the penalty imposed by using non-optimum "off-the-shelf TECs. These optimized TEC configurations can provide an effective negative thermal resistance while operating at high COP thereby extending the limits of traditional air cooling for electronics.

That paper was published June 2004 - 4.5 years later and I have heard nothing about it - I wonder if this is as feasible as once theorized?

well, im shocked.......

it was only a very short time ago they brought out a 40gb SSD & it was the size of a suitcase, they keep pushing that tech out the door faster & faster
