Do you have a spare $25,000 laying around, collecting dust? Want to build a supercomputer that has 6TBs of memory with write speeds of 2GBs a second? Now you can thanks to Solid State Drives (SSDs).

A good computer these days writes data at approximately 60MBs a second, but when staging a marketing event to promote Samsung’s SSds, they were able to get the write speed up to 2GBs a second, or 34 times faster than the current average. Course, it took over $25K to do this, but it is still impressive. You can see just how impressive this would be in the video below, and even more impressive since they chose to run Windows Vista!
