PhotoFast 1TB SSD drive

Japanese manufacturer PhotoFast has produced the G-Monster PCIe SSD, a new solid-state drive designed around extreme specifications. Whereas most SSDs are limited to 256GB or less, the G-Monster starts at that level, and additionally comes in 512GB and 1TB capacities, rivaling some hard drives. The G-Monster is substantially longer however, closer in size to a high-end video card.

The drive is also claimed to have a 750MBps read capacity, matched by a 700MBps writing speed; many high-end competing SSDs can read no faster than 250MBps. PhotoFast has set an April release date for the G-Monster, but has yet to publish prices. The company is also not known for distribution in North America.

    Holy wow

    That's some fast speeds for a hard drive. At least you would know that your hard drive isn't the bottleneck in your system anymore.
