Written by test

PCI Express card solution

It seems as if PCI Express based SSD drives are all the rage these days and after a couple of slightly more industrial entries, Taiwanese PhotoFast has entered the market with a somewhat more consumer friendly looking device.

The PhotoFast G-MONSTER PCIe SSD as it's known might not match Fusion-io's ioDrive Dual in terms of performance, it's at least faster than OCZ's Z Drive on paper. The G-MONSTER PCIe SSD offers write speeds of up to 700MB/s and read speeds of 750MB/s. It's using an onboard RAID 0 configuration to reach these numbers and the card also has an unspecified amount of onboard cache.

The G-MONSTER PCIe SSD uses MLC flash memory and will be available in 256, 512 and 1024GB sizes. The specifications states that it connects to your PC via a PCI Express x8 interface, although judging by the picture of the card, it looks more like a PCI Express x4 connector.

So far no pricing has been revealed and it seems like the product is only going to be available in Japan initially.
