    Intel To Showcase SSD Overclocking At IDF13 San Francisco – Possible With Ivy Bridge-E CPUs on August 24 2013

    WCCFTECH's Hassan Mujtaba states:

    You must be wondering how SSD overclocking can be possible or if an SSD even allows overclocking in the first place? Well it is possible to overclock an SSD through pumping up the SSD controller speeds which would boost the NAND Flash’s data transfer rate...

    in reality the performance gains would be minor since the major bottleneck is not the read, write speeds or the IOPS but rather the SATA 6 Gbps interface...

    The new SATA Express interface would debut next year with the refreshed Haswell Z97 and H97 boards and also on the X99 chipset that would debut in late 2014 with the Haswell-E HEDT platform. By then, SSD overclocking would prove to be useful since the bottleneck by the current SATA 6 Gbps would be erased.

    There's now a comparative graph that shows the speeds of USB 3.1, SATA 3.2, and Thunderbolt 2.0, right here at TinkerTry.com/timeline-of-usb-sata-and-thunderbolt-speeds. It'll give you a sense of how exciting the prospect of blowing past today's speed barriers will be, as we head toward 2014.
