Housing up to 4 DDR RAM modules, the i-RAM has no sluggish mechanical or moving parts and employs a custom GIGABYTE controller that allows the operating system to see it as a regular SATA drive. Recognizing the potential behind solid state storage technology, GIGABYTE R&D engineers designed i-RAM with two stand-by power sources that cater for the needs of professional power users and thrill seeking enthusiast alike. Through GIGABYTE's custom intelligent controller, i-RAM accesses data at close to 1.5Gb/s – the top speed of SATA. Compatible with conventional DDR memory modules, i-RAM is outfitted with four 184-pin DIMM slots that support up to 4GB of unbuffered memory. Power is provided through the PCI slot allowing for stand-bye power when the system is shut down. In case of a power outage or accidental disconnection from the wall power socket, a battery is provided on the i-RAM module that is charged on the fly when the system receives power again. As a solid state device, i-RAM offers incredible reliability while at the same time delivering extremely low random access time. i-RAM reached an unprecedented score of 50,000 in PCMARK 2004 - at least twice as fast as standard SATA hard disks in several tests. Without the mechanical elements of traditional hard disks, i-RAM's stunning performance unequivocally proves the benefits of using DRAM in massive data access applications such as video/audio capture & editing, and 3D graphics design applications. i-RAM is undoubtedly the fastest storage device on the market!
