Gigabyte's i-RAM: Affordable Solid State Storage
The important thing to focus on is that thanks to Gigabyte’s battery system, data-loss was never an issue during our use of the card; and despite the lack of ECC memory support, we never had any data corruption during our testing.
In the end, the i-RAM is an interesting addition to a system, but it’s usefulness will truly vary from one user to the next. With a bit more capacity, and especially for those users who happen to have a few 1GB sticks laying around, the i-RAM could be a very powerful addition to your system. Hats off to Gigabyte for making something useful, and we can't wait to see rev 2...

Apparently Gigabyte is limitting the success of their own invention.
- Why not SATA I & II compatibility?
- Why a memory controller that operates at a mere 100MHz (DDR200)? Did DDR200 come out in 1GB sticks at all? No, so we'd have to use other memory anyway.
- Wouldn't iRAM benefit massively from DDR2? (maybe more expensive but it should be an option).

Oh yes, let's not forget: 4GB ???
What on earth can you fit on that? Doom 1?
- 8GB ought to be the minimum, and no I don't want to buy another iRAM to get that space because:
a) I may not have any slots left in my RAID array
b) I would have to spent another 150$ and this thing is already expensive enough!
