Well I saw a youtube video a while ago.
Where the man raided 2 kingston 512 read / write SSD's together.
to get a 1024 (1gig) transfer ratio.

I've been waiting to do this.
And I can't find the SSD anywhere.
More then likely it is gone from the market.
But I am still looking for any size, preferably very small.

With that read and write speed or higher.
Can anyone help me in this search.

For once Google wasn't very fruitful.

I'm not after a 512 gig hard drive.
I'm after one with a 512mb read / write speed.

try here
RAIDDrive is designed to break the throughput bottleneck in the storage subsystem by removing the bandwidth limitation of the SATA bus. The PCIe x8 interface used by RAIDDrive SSDs supports 2GB/sec bandwidth, more than ten times that of the SATA-II 3Gbps bus, and five times greater than the not yet available SATA-III bus.

Toms Hardware benchmarked the drive here...their conclusion is

The final conclusion depends on pricing up and down the lineup, which is probably too expensive for enthusiast PCs (we know that the 1TB RAIDDrive GS, for gamers and enthusiasts, will be priced at $4,999). RAID controllers cost a few hundred dollars; 128MB SSDs with Indilinx controllers cost another $250 each. We’ve probably gotten close to the price you should expect for a 512GB RAIDDrive: in excess of $1,000.

Fusion-io’s ioDrive is much faster on I/Os, but it has a hard time competing in throughput, plus it isn't bootable.


for all the SSD benchmarking go here...a little lite reading

Sorry I misunderstood your requirements.

Are you willing to pay that kind of money?
