Plus, you'll never have to worry about things like stutter and premature wear in this case since according to Intel, information is only written / read from the SSD when an application is first clicked.
The thing that pisses me off is (from my understanding of the Anandtech article) nothing is hardware based about the RST technology, its just a software based RAID solution. This means there is probably no reason (atleast on P/H6x series) this couldnt be adopted, maybe even further back to 5x chipsets? Just intel forcing you to upgrade all your shit again.
As for Virtu, I'll wait for Intel and nVidias solutions first, before jumping on this bandwagon.
Actually, the more I think about it, the more this bleeding edge tech is just going to make me wait for Ivy bridge and the bugfixes I'm sure it'll bring
Newbie here, silly question:
Will Z68 work with only Sandy Bridge installed, like H67 ? (i mean without any discreet graphic card). If for example one day if my graphic card dies, i just want to be assured that i still be able to use the machine temporary, until i replace another card. Can't do that with P67 though.
