    What makes the SSDNow KC100 different other than the warranty?

    All the troops need to sort out their reliability and compatibility issues on SSDs because most are not ready for Prime time at this point in the game if you need secure data.

    64 GB. of RAM won't do much unless you're running large programs or many apps concurrently. Reply

    Two words:

    RAM. Drive.

    Its the next logical progression for enthusiasts. Now we just need Intel to release some tools that make it easy for the ram drive to be automatically mirrored and restored to a dedicated SSD.

    I don't really think that's a logical progression much at all. We already have the system cache in place which puts recently loaded items into system memory for quicker access. Having to pull 64GB into system memory every time you boot is going to be more hampering to performance than it's benefits. Reply

    Pfft, who needs 64GB of RAM? 6.40GB should be enough for anyone! Reply

    I do. Biggest swap file to-date: 90 GB. Reply

    I remember a famous software engineer was once rumoured to have said "640K (of ram) should be enough for anybody" Reply

    *shrug*

    For a desktop system, that IS a big deal.

    But for the systems that I'm used to - mehhh.....I'd like to top out a 512 GB system...

    Alpha...That's like complaining the Supercharged 638 HP Corvette ZR-1 ( 0-60 in 3.8 sec, tops at 205MPH) STILL can't haul a 10,000 lb trailor like a 650 HP Turbo Diesel!

    It's hard to understand the world of desktops when you are used to driving "Heavy Metal" that can haul TONS of butt's, instead of just 2 butt's VERY quickly! (2 sides of the same coin)

    Your world is much harder for readers to imagine since software we use has absolutely no use for 512GB of ram and multiple 6 core cpu's!
