Only two consumer level products in existence that didn't suck: GIGABYTE - PC Components - - GC-RAMDISK
GIGABYTE - PC Components - - i-RAM BOX

With the current RAM prices plummeting like a rock I'm surprised nobody's tried to revamp this design. Aside from the low capacity and lack of ECC newer DDR3 modules eliminate almost all the problems previously present in the technology. Would make a pretty amazing OS drive.

That thing is like 6 years old. And there are other companies that make significantly better ramdrives.

ACARD Products - IDE/SCSI/SATA RAID Storage Solutions

Then there is the DDRdrive. Huge small file IOPS, but they made it PCIe x1.
DDRdrive X1: Solid-State Storage Redefined.

Yup, RAMDisk. Just thought the benchmark was neat. Was hoping at least one person would be astounded lol.

Neato. Is that DDR Ram, not ddr2? If it is, quite odd they even compare it to an x25.

Just script copying everything you need into RAM at startup. Most users don't reboot their computer continuously throughout the day.
