Everyone who are used to using fast computers will know this feeling. You sit down at a system that is not yours. You hit the power button. Five minutes later, the CPU is still at 100%, low memory warnings pop up, and just when you seem life cannot get any worse, seek noise from the hard drive continues rhythmic pattern with no end in sight. At this point, you start to go nuts. First, you scream like a little girl. Then you bang your head on the table repeatedly, and scratch it in such frantic manner until your hair starts to resemble Gary Spivey's. Like the prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel in the Bible, regardless of what you do, your acts of desperation goes unheard. But wouldn't you rather be Elijah instead? Sure, no fire will come down from heaven anytime soon (At least I sure hope not), but G.SKILL has something that will sure breathe some fire into your system -- and at the same time, it does not command a price like money is going to fall from the sky tomorrow. The Phoenix EVO 115GB SSD is the company's latest product in the highly competitive flash storage market for computer enthusiasts. Using the renowned SandForce SF-1222 controller with new 25nm MLC ICs, you are going to take a small performance hit along with less available storage capacity due to higher provisioning compared to SSDs using 34nm chips -- but what you do have to gain is a lower price of entry for a better cost-per-gigabyte ratio. So are you ready to eliminate your bottleneck, assuming you have a decent processor and adequate amounts of RAM? Let's crack it open to take a look at what's under the hood, and put it through out series of standard benchmarks.
