Are We There Yet?

An update on the world of (semi) serious SSD is in order. The Intel 710 is the successor, sort of, to the X25-E. AnandTech has a review and status update. Worth the read for the industry background alone.

The clearest description, and the one that was most logical: "Fundamentally, Intel's MLC-HET is just binned MLC NAND."

I'll mention in passing that AnandTech is dipping a toe into "Enterprise SSD" review with a piece on OCZ. Not that OCZ is really serious, of course; the Sandforce controllers depend on clear text data streams, which are getting yet more scarce in the Enterprise.
