I just found this excellent video on YouTube. As a promotion for Samsung SSDs they put together a monster computer which runs FAST! The systems uses 24 256GB Samsung MLC SSD's in a RAID configuration.
The computer uses:
- 24 x 256GB SSD drives (6TB in total)
- 2 x Quad Core QX9775 processors (with huge fans)
- 2 x Radeon HD4870 X2 video cards using crossfire
- 4GB of RAM
- 2 x 1000 Watt power supplies
When it is all put together is gives a through put of 2000 Megabytes/s!!! For one of the tests they start everything in the Start Menu which totals 53 programs and they start in just 18.09 seconds!!!!
