    Hyperdrive -DRAM based hard drive -superfast!

    ^good picture here

    The HyperDrive III is quite simply a Hard Disk made out of DRAM. It therefore connects and performs like an impossibly fast Hard Disk. Here are the technical specs:

    CDROM drive form factor. Fits into a standard 5.25" CD bay.

    Connects just like a Hard Disk or a CDROM.

    PATA(IDE) or SATA

    Unlike the HyperDrive II which only took on board RAM. The HyperDirve III provides 8 DIMM slots, each of which can take DIMMs up to 2GB in capacity (no on board RAM). So max capacity is now 16GB.

    Retains data when the PC is restarted or shutdown by having an independent power supply connected to the main PC power lead through a PCI slot blanking plate.

    Integral 160 minute 7.2v battery back up to cover electricity board power outages (1250 milliamp hours - on board trickle charge unit takes 48 hours to fully charge).


    thinking about getting one..

    you've gotta buy the ram seperate i think..

    would be perfect for nlited xp, on 2gb of ram.. -can ghost back to it in no time if you did lose power and lose the o/s



    here's the stats, i tidied them up!!

    HEXUS believes no one person has a monopoly on ideas, and that your opinion matters.

    you'd need 2gb max for XP

    1gb would be ample if you used an nlited xp


    as for loosing everything? -ghost. takes about a minute to restore on this

    *drool*.. wow, thats just.. wow.
    Imagine how useful that would be to gamers who whine about 3 second loading times of modern games?.. Not a practical device, but definatly desireable if you have the wallet to pay for it.

    2gb wont get you very far with xp, if you have reason to buy the iram then you are an enthusiast/power user and will have demanding games and apps

    if you want your programs sped up aswell you will need them installed on the iram too so your wanting atleast 4 gb i reckon

    my plan is 2 i rams and 2 2gb dimms and raid them , then i can add a couple of 2gb dimms each month till i have filled it up for a total of 16 gb!

    bear in mind we have windows vista coming soon and thats going to be bloated !never mind all the apps and games that get bigger all the time

    on the contrary, this might work superly fast as a processing station drive for my mass spec data and AnalystQS... but 16GB will be gone after 2 sets of data.
