Gigabyte shows of GC-RAMDISK

Gigabyte presented a new version of its i-RAM storage product, the GC-RAMDISK.

This product no longer needs an empty PCI slot for power, instead it needs to be put into a 5.25" drive bay and it grabs its power from a four-pin molex connector.
An onboard battery still keeps the memory powered when the system is shut down, though. Gigabyte told us that when the latest GC-RAMDISK hits the market, it will support up to 8 GB of DDR2 memory—twice the capacity of the original i-RAM. 300 MB/s Serial ATA transfer rates are also on the menu, addressing our only real gripes with the Gigabyte's first stab at solid state storage.
