Looks like Seagate is making good on its threats. First lawsuits filed.

Pseudo-SSD's - CF cards in a SATA adapter! Just like that iRam from Gigabyte, but probably better :p

Serf

so what are some good performance stats for these devices?
any good links for comparisons to normal hard drives?

ive been reading mixed reviews about performance

im trying to ramp up the speed of my xp machine at work and i was thinking of installing a solid state drive for the swap file to dramatically increase performance.

My visual studio process alone is taking 700mb of ram and 800mb of virtual.

Is this the right solution?

Might be best to make a thread for your questions mate, save derailing this one.

Very cool. 3 150x 8GB CFs in RAID 0 would be schmick for a no noise fast booting media centre.

In one line...buy some more ram (unless you have 4GB already)

$4-5 Billion should go a fair way towards it, especially if we get it from somewhere cheap like MSY.

"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."

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/storage/display/ssd-iram.html

The ssd's performance seems similar to the first one i brought (lousy). I imagine the mtron models etc fair a bit better.

"...the new drives read at up to 130MB/s with write speeds of 67MB/s, with capacities that range from 16GB up to 128GB" and are apparently the greenest drives available.

Though I have never heard of Greenhouse to begin with....
No prices as yet either.

^ crazy setup, 6x i-ram raid 5 on an ich9r, 750MB/s average read. I guess he hasn't populated all the ram slots in that benchmark.

Also here's my quick test of my 3 x iram raid 0, ich9r.

http://img513.imageshack.us/my.php?image=iramx3rt9.jpg

From what i have read, vista has a fair performance drop compared to xp. Though 350MB/s is around what i could expect at best, so it's not too bad.

Also the price isn't as bad as most would expect. The last one cost me $130 for 4x 1gb ddr400 dimms inc delivery, plus $94 for the actual i-ram. So thats $224NZ per 4gb 'unit' (~$185Aus). For the mean time it's a good alternative for me.

Edit: Looking on ebay, a 32GB 100MBs/80MBs mtron ssd costs $700US/$900NZ/$730Aus. And over 1000US$ for the 120MBs/90MBs model. Still got a fair way to drop price wise

Where did you pick up the iRam from? I'd be interested in giving it a go.
