The ioDrive from Fusion-io was announced quite some time back, with specifications and information on the product.  However, Windows drivers were not available until recently, and the product was not readily available for purchase until today.  DVNation has become the Internet’s exclusive distributor for the ioDrive.  The product itself is massively impressive.  ioDrive boasts 800MB/S read and 680MB/S write performance, with 120,000 IOPS and a sub-50 micosecond access time.  Two cards can even be used in a RAID configuration for further enhanced performance.  Such speed does come at a price, though.  The 80GB version sells for $2649, and the 160GB version sells for $4899 (at the time of writing).  Drivers are available for 64-bit versions of Windows only, though, at present.
