Samsung plans to introduce PCIe-based SSD products in 2013.

It would be nice because I cant find a decent Motherboard with more than 2 Native Intel Sata ports.
Next year Haswell and Z87/88 will be out.
The new 8 series chipset is said to have up to 6 SATA3 native ports.

If that is the case and the new Z87/88 will have 6 native Intel ports to run SSDs from, I will never use a spinning hdd again. As is I have both Intel ports with SSDs and use the marvell ports for my 1.5 tb hard drives. It works for the time being but Haswell should make my computers the way I like. I really hope Haswell is introduced by 2013, at least the second quarter.
Thanks for the info Wendy.
Well, X79 was supposed to have 10 native SATA3 ports and ended up with only 2.
So let’s hope Intel can get their act together with the 8 series chipsets.
To get the required bandwidth for 6 SATA3 ports, I would reckon the 8 series PCH (Platform Controller Hub) will need to be a PCIe3 device.
