Marvell Showcase PCI-E SSD with 2GB/s throughput
 
Santa Clara based Marvell Technologies today laid claim to the fastest SSD till date with their new PCI-E SSD. The MLC NAND Flash based device boasts of a whopping 2GB/s sustained throughput and 200K IOPs.
 
Created using the 88SE9480 quad-channel PCI-Express to SATA controller, the SSD features four 88SS8014 SATA controllers connected to NAND Flash controllers. All of these controllers come with wear-levelling technology and ECC hardware for high-end performance.
 
Showcased in its pre-production stage at Computex, the SSD consists of two separate cards connected via SATA connectors. Cache for the SSD is expected to be in the form of four DDR2 SoDIMMs, which would be accommodated in the memory slots on the upper card. However, details on the specific sizes supported are unavailable at the moment.
 
As of now, the device is aimed at server and workstation class environments, and there is no news on whether Marvell would make it available for 2.5in hard drives. However, company reps at Computex did reveal that the SSD is compatible with such drives. If the SSD becomes available as an independent product, it could bring an entirely new generation of SSDs into the market.

What I meant was the depth length of those 120mm fans.

The normal depth I believe, 25mm. You do lose your 5.25" bays though, I thought it was done with the harddisk caddies?

if you have anymore ideas they will be greatly appreciated




You can try to attach the front 5.25" plate to your optical drive. It would look the same and noone would know you have it. I saw it somewhere on other forum and hopefully will do the same with my 300. Just received it yesterday, trying to downgrade from 900.
