SATA2 DDR2 HyperDrive5
« on: 2009.06.14, 00:12:42 »
While googling around for information about SDD-drives I stumbled over this SATA2 DDR2 HyperDrive5 that seems quite nice; just the specs speaks for it self: 175MB/s Read rate & 145MB/s Write rate. Does anyone have own experience of similar solutions or of SDD for that matter?

Might be that the bus speed is the limit; I also noticed that the unit demands external power to keep the content of the unit; so it's a bit flawed in design.

Yes, I've seem some that use an internal button cell battery to keep the power during periods when the computer is off. I think that PCI-E bus can provide leech power much like USB can when the computer is off (but I believe this depends on the motherboard).

I have to find another RAMdrive I saw earlier, it put this one to shame. It was around 300-400Mbps for both read and write.
