MojoKid writes "Intel recently announced their new line of SSD 910 PCI Express Solid State Drives for the datacenter and high-end workstation markets. The 800GiB Intel SSD 910 is comprised of four SSD modules, 200GiB for each module, each with 448GB of Intel 25nm NAND per card (over-provisioned). Each of the SSD arrays is managed by a co-developed Intel-Hitachi SAS/NAND controller and providing the x8 Gen 2 PCI Express interface for the card is LSI's LSISAS2008 PCI Express to SAS bridge. Performance-wise, with 2GB/sec sustained read and up to 1.5GB/sec sustained write bandwidth, the card competes well versus competitive solutions in the market and comes with a 7 to 14PB (400GiB and 800GiB cards respectively) lifetime endurance rating."
