Catalyst 11.2: Tweaktown no likey.

Photofast pricing the 128GB for $200 looks promising for the next gen Marvell SSDs.

I couldn't download the 11.2 driver from Firefox but Chrome downloaded it no problems. It installed no problems once I got it downloaded. Working perfectly as far as I can tell.

I've been playing a lot of MechWarrior 4 Mercenaries since it's free.

Here's a Tom's Hardware Guide article about the OCZ Vertex 2 34nm vs 25nm also

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ocz ... ,2867.html

Pretty big difference in I/O performance and major difference in uncompressible sequential write (like halved). But good to see that in the real world tests they were back and forth on which one was better.
