Gigabyte demos 4 GByte RAM disk

by Dhiram Shah

Fast alternatives to traditional harddrive storage have been a trend that especially resulted in Flash-based drives. Gigabyte showed at this year’s Computex an even speedier device: A RAM disk with up to 4 GByte capacity and a battery to protect content when a PC is shut down. Gigabyte’s RAM disk is connected to the system via SATA-1 and uses a PCI port for power supply. The device offers four sockets for DDR1 DIMMs, enabling a capacity of up to 1 GByte. The RAM disk will be shipping in the third quarter of this year and will carry a price tag of about $80.
