Games Late last night, Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 - sort of. It's got a custom 8-core AMD x86-64 processor, 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, and a custom Radeon-based graphics chip. It's also got additional chips to offload specific tasks like video (de)compression (livestreaming is built-in!), and there's a large focus on streaming games, but most of it is "an ultimate goal" instead of a definitive feature. It won't play PS3 discs (but will eventually stream many PS3 games), and, while there's some weaselwording involved, second hand games are safe. The biggest surprise? The console itself wasn't shown because it's not done yet. No joke. No price, no release date (other than somewhere before the holidays).

But SSD raids do not pass trim command and performance degrades over time, or did they fixed that?

I learnt the hard way. The RAID 0 failed.

I got RAID 1 so I can swap another drive in there if one of the SSD fail.

It isn't perfect.

I dunno if Windows 7+ sorts that or not. I am not that bothered. For 2 years I had more than 300mb/s transfer rate. The performance was worth it.
