Bringing affordable solid-state storage to the mainstream market, GIGABYTE have just officially introduced their I-RAM. The device acts as a standard SATA hard disk, only it is in fact a PCI card which allows you to connect (up to) 4 DDR memory modules for the storing of your data. There are a few minor setbacks about this new type of (affordable) solid state storage solution, but at least GIGABYTE have got the right idea in supplying technology of this type to enthusiasts alike, and without the huge costs involved.
Gigabyte TECHNOLOGY, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, VGA cards and other computing hardware solutions, has launched Gigabyte i-RAM, the world's fastest storage device available to digital graphics designers and PC enthusiasts. Housing up to 4 DDR RAM modules, Gigabyte i-RAM has no sluggish mechanical or moving parts and employs a custom Gigabyte controller that allows the operating system to see it as a regular Serial ATA drive. Gigabyte first publicly displayed i-RAM at Computex 2005 in Taipei earlier this year where it was hailed by many as one of the most innovative new technologies at the show.
