Nice development. Read recently that some early laptops equipped with SSD's were slower than comparable HDD's!

As I see it, the OS writes to essentialy a RAM disk. This then writes, as slowly as before, to the actual flash memory.

Just a HDD with a big cache, is how I see it. Probably just as thirsty if not more so than a regular HDD for power.
