Samsung mass producing speedier solid-state drives

Quote:
Apple's new MacBook Air has adopted faster solid-state drives made by Samsung. But Apple won't be the only beneficiary.

Samsung announced today that it has started mass-producing new PCIe solid-state drives aimed at the next generation of ultrabooks. SSDs that use a PCIe connection offer faster speeds than those outfitted with SATA (Serial ATA) connections.

As one example, Samsung's XP941 SSD can read data sequentially at 1,400 megabytes (1.4 gigabytes) per second, the highest speed offered by a PCIe 2.0 interface. In the real world, that means the drive can read 500GB of data or 100 high-definition movies as large as 5GB in just six minutes. Such a PCIe SSD is seven times faster than a conventional hard drive and 2.5 times quicker than the fastest SATA SSD.

Finally SSDs on PCI-e. And not on that %&$&%$ of msata.

I wonder if BIOS or UEFI can boot off those things.

I was able to boot from my old OCZ PCI-E x2 drive card using BIOS/Legacy, but not with UEFI. Hopefully it will not be an issue with these.

I so wish they would quit spouting Sequential transfer speeds. I want to see the numbers that actually make an OS snappier/faster. Hopefully this will catch storage up(or at least close the gap) to CPU and RAM so it isn't such of a bottleneck. Interesting......and potentially gamechanging.
