Gigabyte i-RAM drive for super fast performance

Posted on Tuesday, July 12 2005 @ 00:51:29 CEST by


HKEPC has reviewed Gigabyte's i-RAM drive. This PCI add-in card has four DDR memory slots and has a Serial ATA interface. Compared to a normal hard drive it offers extremely low access times and overall much faster performance.

Gigabyte's i-RAM supports up to 4GB DDR memory and when you shuw down your PC it will keep its data by drawing standby power from its PCI slot. The company claims the device also has a battery which will keep your data safe for 16 hours.

HKEPC compared the i-RAM with Seagate's 80GB 7200rpm 8MB Cache HDD. Booting up Windows XP took only 6.42 seconds with the i-RAM while the Seagate HDD needs 13.17 seconds. In PCMark04 the i-RAM also scores an impressive 57699, compared to the Seagate 80GB HDD's 4122 score.

Like expected Gigabyte's i-RAM outperforms a normal HDD in each and every single test. The site is in Japanese but you can check out the i-RAM review and the benchmarks over here.
