Windows 7: If you think SATA III is slow, then here's a solution

Speedy 8Gbit, 16Gbit SATA Express systems coming this year - PCWorld

The Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO) Thursday announced that the ratification process has started for SATA Express, which standardizes PCI Express (PCIe) as an interface for client storage.

The SATA Express starndard utilizes a new connector defined by SATA-IO to enable a device with a PCIe interface to be in a hard disk drive form-factor. “So while such a PCIe device operates with PCIe protocol and signaling, the host would need a SATA Express host connector to connect to the PCIe device,” said Paul Wassenberg, SATA-IO Marketing Workgroup Chair.

PCIe technology enables interface speeds of up to 1GB/s per client lane, versus today’s SATA technology speeds of up to 0.6GB/s.

The SATA Express specification will enable development of new devices that can utilize the PCIe interface and maintain compatibility with existing SATA applications. The technology, SATA-IO claims, will provide a cost-effective means to increase device interface speeds to 8Gb/s and 16Gb/s.
Solid states can now become much faster!

Don't care much for record breaking sequential speeds. I want 500 MB/s 4k blocks transfer rate.

On the other hand, that's fast enough to maybe call for a return of the RAM drives. Maybe for real this time.
