Seagate is rightfully bragging about their new PCIe SSD line up, the fastest currently available. The drives come in two types, a 16 lane and an 8 lane model, using a standard PCIe interface. The 16 lane version provides the full theoretical speed of 10GBps while the 8 lane model is less expensive and offers a mere 6.7GBps of throughput. These drives are designed for enterprise usage but if you can afford the steep price tag which will come with these drives you could certainly using them for an impressive upgrade. Check out more at The Inquirer.
"SEAGATE HAS announced what the firm claims will be the world's fastest solid state drive (SSD). The 10GBps device is already production-ready and has been built to Open Compute Project (OCP) specifications, making it suitable for hyperscale data centres."
