This earthquake is a fitting precedent for what is about to occur, not only in the SSD industry but also, in the PC world and ultrabooks specifically. If we consider a laptop with today`s hard drive to a new SATA 3 SSD system, we can account for the SSD system having 6x the power and starting in 15 seconds compared to the normal system taking a minute or longer. If we considered what we learned this week, new Haswell ultrabooks weighing in at about 3 lbs will never require a power button as they will start and stop much the same as your smartphone instantly. Their performance would be a mindboggling 22x higher than a hard drive computer if you consider that the average transfer speed of a hard drive is 80MB/s compared to that of a 1800MB/s SSD. Add to this that while your ultrabook is asleep, just as your smartphone, it is continuously updating and receiving such things as e-mails as well as twitter and Facebook updates without disturbing you."
