RAM disk add-in card - Gigabyte's fast data storage
Next, a PCI card from Gigabyte that acts as a SATA hard drive - but using DDR RAM for amazingly fast access. Coming in a configuration up to 4GB, this means super-fast data storage.
Opteron 165 (2) @2.85 1.42 vcore AMD Stock HSF + Chill Vent II

Hmmm, come to think of it I am going to stick with the Raptor for the time being.
16 Hours of battery time is simply not enough. 24 hours would be a good start.
But then again what happens if want to go away for the weekend? You would either have to leave the PC running or reinstall windows on monday!
If Gigabyte had played it smart and since this is a PCI card, they could have provided a special PC power cable with a junction coming off it right before the PSU leaving at least 2 plugs available so that with an additional power cable leading to the back of the PCI, power would be provided even if the PC wasn't turned on! That in combination with an average UPS would in effect compensate for the volatile nature of the memory.
All that until MRAM becomes available of course!
We came close Smithers :excellent , nevermind, next time:grin:
