SSD Performance

Today I saw an excellent review about OCZ 64 GB MLC SSD Disk running on Vista.
OCZ Core SSD read write
average STR throughput 125MiB/sec 73MiB/sec
typical random access penalty 0.43ms 246ms
idle power use ~1W
load power use <3w

7200 RPM WD hard disk
WD6400AAKS read write
average STR throughput 85MiB/sec 85MiB/sec
typical random access penalty 13.6ms 17ms
idle power use ~6W
load power use ~9W

However, Next generation controllers do promise the unbelievable performance. Fabless chip designing firm Indilinx pushed read and write speed to 230MB/s and 170MB/s for SLC and 200MB/s, 160MB/s for MLC SSD. So probably MLC SSDs going to blow out its HDD brothern within 6-8 months time period from now. Probably Apple's forthcoming Macbook and Macbookpro will have options for SSDs like its beautiful younger sister Macbook air. Interstingly density increase NAND will help iPhone to have more memory soon.
