Default SSD and i-RAM vs Traditional Hard Disk Drives

In this article we are going to introduce to you two solid state drives from Samsung and a unique data storage solution from Gigabyte aka i-RAM. Let check out their performance compared to that of conventional hard disk drives.

I bet that article is paid by Seagate, considering they took the crappy Samsung SSDs.

I bet you are completely incorrect

You end up in a price realm of SSD HDs too fast. When I-Ram launched, it was interesting for a few users but now it simply is not competitive with SSDs.

I can only point at the fast 64 Gb OCZ SSD Disk that goes for only 1000$ at Newegg. That fits even an XP install and most WORK porgrams.

I can only see very expensive 4 GB modules, 4 GB (2x2) costs 63$ so that would still make 1008$ for 64 GB DDR2.

Aim for 8Gb of RAM disk which boots your PC instantly, good tradeof with cost

i agree rutar... i have a 36.7gig raptor and it's a little on the small side for all my game installs and what not... but 64 gig's would be quite nice. anything smaller and it's just not enough. especially with these darn near 10 gig games these days

jmke... if they could do that and make a slot on a motherboard that's actually designed for that it would be great... however i won't have jack for pci slots after i get sli since i already ahve a soundcard.

Hm, Velociraptor costs $300... same price would give 20GB of DDR2.

I would suspect that a new and improved (IE current) drive microcontroller + SATA II interface + DDR2 would greatly improve the RAM drives's performance. Plenty of room for more memory if adding a low RPM fan.
