Angelbird introduced the Wings PCIe SSD, a new SandForce-based storage solution that has been designed to host single drives, dual drives, or quad-SSD configurations of 120GB each. The PCIe SSD promises full boot compatibility with Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, and features read speeds of up to 1.02GB/s and write speeds as high as 900MB/s. Prices start at $540 for the 120GB single-module card, a dual-module card costs $840 and the quad-module card is priced at $1,400.
Unlike traditional enterprise-grade PCIe SSD devices, the Angelbird Wings promises full boot compatibility with Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X systems, and comes with the option of a dedicated partition to store an OS disc image plus drivers to make re-installation easier should something go wrong.
Davide Rutigliano, founder of Angelbird, claimed that 'the bootable Wings card changes the game yet again, by booting on Windows, Linux, and OS X, or allowing peaceful coexistence and integration of all of the above on the same system, whether it is a PC or a Mac Pro.'
