When will revision 3 appear?

Does anyone know how long the G2 has been out, and if there is a G3 plan?

Thanks!

What I want to know is WHEN Intel will get off their Butts and fix this whole problem with the toolbox and Raid 0?

Only Intel knows for sure, but here are some interesting links:

This July 2009 article on HotHardware shows a plan for launching a "Postville-Refresh" in Q2 2010. Clearly that doesn't appear to be happening.

This January 2010 article on Anandtech points to a new SSD based on 25-nm Nand in Q4 2010:

Doing some basic research, you can find that:

Based on the 1 year, 2 months it took on 34nm, that would be April 2011. Assuming a one-quarter pull-in (20% improvement), that would put a new SSD based on 25-nm in Jan 2011.

Anyways, those are just guesses, but you can bet you'll hear a lot of noise as the G3 release gets closer.
