- Jmke thanks for the cenatek review, it confirmed my theories.

I visited their homepage and sent them an e-mail about an 8GB PCIe version of the RocketDrive.

I also sent an e-mail to superSSD.com but they seem to have only enterprise products.

I also read (in CustomPC i think) about Savrow Computers www.savrow.com and how they build PCs to order WITH solid state disks. Would you ever do a review of their stuff Jmke?

To my opinion 8GB is all I need (my 74GB Raptor has less than that, including a 2GB solid pagefile), the rest of my data is sitting in external disks. If WinXP, one top game like Doom3 or HL2 and the rest of the tiny programs we usually employ could all run from such a disk wouldn't there be a dramatic increase in performance?

I can't image system; no resource available; saw it posted at their site that they did put the page file there; but with only 512Mb in RAMdisk the pagefile is too small;

have installed 1.5GB in system now; running 2T which "lowers" performance a bit

it would make an interesting review, might have to tap some resources to get all the hardware needed for a really interesting test.

would approach the review by building 2 identical systems, save for the hard disk, then put a camera on the 2 systems so you can watch the boot difference; loading times, copying, cd burning, etc etc

of course all the data will be represented in digital graph/table format also for those who like numbers

such a review does require time and space; something I do not have much of at the moment; in a few months maybe, who knows, [M] review crew is pretty big, so we usually have somebody available at all times to review new gear

"RamDisk Plus adds multiple disk support, system page file support, and a versatile disk image backup facility. You can manually save the RAM disk’s contents to an image file, or have the contents saved automatically when the computer is shutdown. This feature ensures that service and application data stored on the RAM disk can be preserved between system restarts. During the subsequent system start-up, the disk's image is automatically loaded."

Have "Plus" installed here

Ok I just found out about some extremely expensive solid sate disks called PuRam:

PuRam™ - The future, today.
Introducing the first desktop computer configurable WITHOUT a system hard drive. The Operating system and system files reside on a PuRam™ solid state flash disk with near zero latency and seek times, and burst transfer rates up to 8.0GB/s I/O, capable of over 150,000 I/O requests per second, all with an average of 0.0% CPU utilization. This translates into an effective desktop business productivity of up to 100 times faster than the fastest available hard disk design at any price or configuration. These are non-volatile units just like a regular hard drive with a permanent storage cycle. There are no more virtual memory or swap file delays (since now they are as fast as RAM) and there are no more System Disk Defrags (memory is random so it does not need defragging). Windows boots-up in seconds, load your games and apps in seconds, and start any program virtually instantly. Also moving, copying, or working on large files has literally no slow-down affect in the blistering fast computing speed. Furthermore, PuRam™ Drives are extremely resistant to shock, vibration and temperature variations, while providing unprecedented performance and superior durability. Allied to our CacheFlow™ technology, the PuRam™ Drives give your audio, video, CAD, graphic, gaming, industrial or scientific applications the most, compelling and unmatched data through output speeds. Absolutely like no other.

I can find no working links though. This:
http://www.go-l.com/ only the front home page works. I think they may have gone bust...

I saw laptops advertised with that storage system also, but they were way too expensive

Have "Plus" installed here

"Q: Can I put a page file on a RAM disk?
A: Yes, starting with RamDisk Plus version 8.0. The expected release date is 31 March 2005. RamDisk and RamDisk Plus version 7.0 do not support page files."

I have version 7.0, crap :/

Ok I have 2 final links.and 1 download:

http://www.storagesearch.com/ssd-buyers-guide.html

http://www.storagesearch.com/bitmicro-art1.html

and the savrow specs of their solid state based Diamond system.

http://www.savrow.com/docs/savrowdiamond.pdf

As if this affair wasn't expensive enough, it now gets a bit confusing too. And I still haven't found a place which sells solid state flash disks as system disks. Where do SavRow get theirs? (Jmke, perhaps you should ask them...and for a sample machine too, just to see how fast it is!)
