Computex 2006: GIGABYTE Showcased Next Generation i-RAM (GC-RAMDISK)
The "fastest storage device", GIGABYTE i-RAM, will be improved in the next generation showcased at Computex as a prototype. It will have a number of key differences, all of which are, frankly speaking, bound to be implemented:
- The device lacks PCI interface. It was needed for Reset signal and +12, +3.3 and +5 V voltages when a PC is on, and +5VSB (Stand By) when it's off. New devices will be powered via a standard Molex.
- Now it can be installed into a 5.25" bay.
- SATA is replaced by SATAII.
- DDR memory is replaced by DDR2.
- The general memory capacity is increased from 4GB to 8GB. Of course, you will need a good UPS to keep your data in case of any power failures. Given there's +5VSB power, data will be kept when a PC is off.
The development of the new GC-RAMDISK is not finished yet. The vendor plans it will arrive to the market in several months.
