did anyone notice that the hard drive is the biggest bottleneck in all systems?

Aren't we all always saying over 2gb of ram is ridiculous. I don't see the point?

It's bootable,so you could set Xp as a pagefile,so instead of powering up and waiting for windows to come off the HDD it would zip off the DDRdrive.SOo much faster.

i read about solid state - they reckon it sucks, the companies always say its better than stanard storage but it isnt big enough.

I just hope it all goes well, 8gb is a bit small but its a hell of a start

8 gigs is plenty for windows or if you want, you can just put your page file on it. Sounds like a sweet deal, might put your fav games on it one at a time based on how much you're playing them. Imagine how fast things would load. Would this mean that you could survive with 512 ram and just have a nice big page file?

Imagine 2 of those + 4GB + Windows XP 64 (Once they get all the drivers and compadablity issues out of the way)

Now THAT will be fast.

Corsair RAM, eh? Reckon we can change the sticks?

Dont quote me on this but if I remember correctly they sell the card and you provide the ram.

It's not RAM, it's a hard drive that utilizes solid state DDR memory, so it'll be blistering fast compared to the standard electro-mechanical hard drives, which are, as bentrinh said, the single biggest bottleneck is a modern computer. It's bootable, meaning not that you can just use it as your pagefile, but you can install your operating system on it, and probably load up Windows in less than ten seconds. 8GB is pretty small, and I don't like the expansion card idea (I'd rather have a "box" of solid state memory that fits into my HDD rack). What we need are flash memory drives. It's cheap, pretty fast, and doesn't need a constant supply of power to maintain its data. There's already some company making a standard hard drive, but it has like 2GB of flash memory on it that you install windows on so it loads your OS (and all related system files) really fast.

I thought flash memory was relatively slow...

I like the idea of Gigabyte's i-RAM. They should just take that and instead of using a PCI slot, put it in the shape of a hard-drive. Even use the big drive bays if you need...
