Patriot is demonstrating "world's fastest PC" at CeBIT. It's a dual-CPU system with five LSI controllers and a whopping forty solid state disks! Building something like this requires around $60,000 but it enables you to rip a Blu-ray disc in just 0.9 seconds!
The system manages a sustained 155,000 IOPS/s This may not give you and idea about the actual speed, but we were given a great example. Ripping a Blu-Ray takes 2-3 hours on a good PC. It takes a mere 0.9 seconds on this one. Yes, less than "one Mississippi". For all of you wanting to build a system like this, be prepared to spend around 60,000 US Dollars on it.
