Intel SSDs For Extreme Gaming ?

OK, it might be great news for you extreme gamers. Here’s the article wrote by Humphrey Cheung (TGDaily) straight from the IDF.

“Intel will be shipping their 80 GB XM SSDs within 30 days and in Q4 the capacity will double to 160 GB.  These drives have a maximum throughput of 250 MB/second and incredible random access times.  In one test, two SSDs in RAID 0 were compared to two Seagate Barracudas (7200rpm) also in RAID 0.  The traditional drives had 572 random read instructions per second while the SSDs performed 44,500 read IOPS/second.  But not all SSDs will provide this amount of performance and Weast said, “the manufacturer of the SSD makes a huge difference.”  In graph after graph, Intel SSDs were compared to Competitor 1 and Competitor 2 SSDs and as you can expect, those drives came up short.

It’s this bandwidth and random access performance that could tip the scales for a competitive gamer.  If you’ve bought a computer game recently, you know that games take longer and longer to load.  In some extreme examples, these texture-rich, eye candy-laden games can make you wait two or more minutes before you can even move your character.  Saleski joked that his Crysis game takes so long to load that he often gets an error after the CD authentication timed out.  He also showed various forum posts of people complaining bitterly about the load times.”
