IDF 2009: Kingston Shows Off 12 'chained' SSDNow Series Drives

Kingston had another strong presence at IDF this year and the highlight of their booth for our audience was clearly the SSD Demo they had setup. The system contained four Kingston SSDNow! M series drives and eight Kingston SSDNow! E series drives! You'll have to read on to see what they did with this many drives.

In this demo Kingston shows off the speed of four sets or Kingston SSDNow! E series drives using an Adaptec RAID controller card and opening 50 files spanning 5 applications in right around 15 seconds. Pretty interesting stuff and it is always interesting to see companies like Kingston pushing the limits when it comes to storage practices!

Not that I'll ever need to open 50 programs in 15 seconds, but impressive! Any details on the price?

That video made me smile

I LOVE the experience of the 120GB vertex in my laptop.

The Adaptec RAID 5085 storage controller is $765.08 shipped and the Adaptec RAID 5445 storage controller is $742.37 shipped. If you factor in the eight Kingston SNE125-S2/32GB drives at $443.98 shipped each and four Kingston SNM125-S2/80GB at $279.98 shipped each, the grand total for just the SSDs and RAID controllers would be $6179.21!

yeah that is well over a $10,000 system sitting there after you factor in software and the case/motherboard/memory/cpu cooler and so on

That would be great to have, but I would never ever have the need for something like it. I wonder how fast Photoshop would open though =D>

Yea.....I actually these extreme SSD demonstrations are a bit counter-productive in that way. What Kingston should really do is just demonstrate what two of the lower end drives can do in RAID 0 on an Intel ICH. That would actually be an amazing experience that would open many of our "normal" users' eyes to the advantages of SSD (which are many).
