I bet Agilty 4 was delayed because they wanted to get out FW 1.4 before they shipped.
Looking at european sites it looks like these are going to be pretty price competitive. Excluding VAT (I think that's MSRP) you're looking at $450 for a 512GB SSD.
Pretty solid specs too: "Read 400MB/s, Write 400MB/s, 1GB Cache, 85k IOPS Max."
Did you notice this on the agility page... " Boot up in as little as 9 seconds, and industry-low latencies of .04 reads and .02 writes enable superior multitasking...."
Who wants to buy 6 of the 256gb drives and make a comparison video to the FIO video jjp posted earlier. Then of course compare the prices of say $1,500 for the agility drives and what, 10-20k for the FIO drives?
I agree that the delay was most likely a result of waiting for FW1.4 to be finished. Seeing as it has been out for a few weeks now, I'm guessing we'll see the drives in the channel this week or at the latest, next week. I got my fingers crossed, as we're still waiting on those Octane 1TB drives to ship.
