World's Fastest PC. Not an Apple

Source

Do you know what happens after you link 24 super fast SSD (Solid-state drives) as a RAID array on Windows Vista? You might have just created your very own super fast computer, possibly the fastest PC in the world!

World’s fastest personal computer, it’s not an Apple!

One IT wizard from Samsung shocked the whole world a few months back; he created an amazing PC computer from the following parts:
26 Samsung SSD 256GB MLC (Hey, I thought 24!)
4 Kingston 888MHz FBDIMM 1GB (read RAM)
6 1*SAS -> 4*SATA SFF-8087 (Cable/Adapter)
6 1 Molex -> 4*SATA Power (Connector)
2 Corsair HX1000W Power Supply
2 Intel Extreme QS9775 Quad-Core
2 Zalman Coolers
2 Radeon HD 4870 x2 Graphics
1 Intel Skulltrail D5400XS Motherboard
1 Adaptec 5 Series RAID (8 channel)
1 Areca 1680ix-24 RAID
1 Thermaltake Armor case

The end results were astounding! Check this out:
Ran all 53 programs from the Windows Start Menu in 18.09 seconds
Ran all Microsoft Office programs in 0.5 seconds
Full defrag (defragmentation) completed in just a few seconds
Recycled 5.6GB of junk in just a few seconds

I guess it is time to take a closer look at those super fast Samsung SSD drives. Why should we let those gamers have all the fun!? ;)

A visitor left a comment and raised some questions about this whole thing but I think he or she got it all wrong. If this whole super fast personal computer thing is some kind of a hoax, why in the world did Samsung include the above video on their corporate site?

  1. It's quite amazing some of the latest component parts. They've gone from minituarization to compatibility.

    Like my graphic card is mid-high end crossfire, my graphic card isn't the fastest, but if I buy 2 of the same type it can challenge the fastest graphic card in the market, and put 3, its faster than anything out there in the market. Only problem is whether application know how to tap into that power.
