Pro-gamer Johnathan ďFatal1tyĒ Wendel, has been hard at work
showing off the latest solid state drive from Fusion-io, targeted at gamers:
"The ioXtreme supercharges high-end PCs and workstations. I predict this technology will fundamentally change the way software is designed, allowing developers to create a new class of applications that seamlessly handle massive amounts of data," Fatal1ty said. ďImagine playing the most intense game, working on complex 3-D graphics, manipulating massive files, ripping multiple DVDs and installing a new application -- all simultaneously. The technology is crazy and works at the speed I need.Ē
ďJohnathanís experience with high-end computing has given him a unique insight into the disruption our core technology brings to all levels of computing,Ē said Steve Wozniak, chief scientist of Fusion-io. ďWe look forward to working with an incredible young talent like him. The ioXtreme is a good example of how combining the wisdom of veterans, such as myself, with next generation expertise such as Johnathanís, will take Fusion-ioís performance revolution into the future.Ē
And yes, that's Steve Wozniak of Apple fame. Also, check out the hilarious video at Fatal1ty's website
