Micron working on 1GB/s PCI Express SSD

Posted on Wednesday, November 26 2008 @ 14:30:31 CET by

TG Daily spotted a video from Micron that talks about the performance of upcoming PCI Express solid state storage solutions, the clip shows off a system with two PCIe SSDs which are capable of hitting 800MB/s. The two cards hit a data throughput of about 150,000 to 160,000 random IOPS and it seems Micron is planning to expand the transfer rate to around 1GB/s.
Posted on Micron’s new blog, the video showcases a 2-processor, eight-core Intel Xeon PC with two SSDs The difference to your average SSD is that these drives are not connected via a PATA or SATA interface and therefore are not limited to the bandwidth limit of 300 MB/s of SATA II. Instead, the drives have PCIe interfaces and, according to Micron, include flash data management enhancements.

During the short demonstration, Micron’s Joe Jeddeloh claims that the two cards hit a data throughput of about 800 MB/s and about 150,000 to 160,000 random IOPS. He also showed a flash PCIe card that combined the two cards in one device with 16 flash channels. This card will be hitting a bandwidth of 1 GB/s and “at least 200,000 IOPS,” he said. For comparison reasons, the fastest enterprise SSDs available from big manufacturers today hit about 250 MB/s and about 30,000 IOPS.
