Definitions for i-ram

This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word i-ram


  1. i-RAM

    Released in June 2005, the i-RAM is a pseudo-solid-state drive produced by Gigabyte. It has four DDR RAM DIMM slots. Connection via a SATA port enables a PC sees the i-RAM as a hard drive. The i-RAM is bottlenecked by the SATA interface, which limits bandwidth to a maximum sustained throughput of 150 MB/s. This speed limitation is offset by near instant access, with a latency of 0.1 ms. DRAM is volatile, so power loss will cause data loss. The i-RAM is installed in a PCI slot, which powers it while the PC is plugged in. It has a backup battery, which operates when the PC is not connected to AC mains power.. The i-RAM supports Unbuffered/Non-ECC DDR 200/266/333/400 MHz RAM modules of different capacities, speeds, and brands for a maximum capacity of 4 GiB. Because of this, cost per GB is high, but the device offers a non-mechanical storage method with higher performance than a traditional hard drive. Unlike modern SSDs, the i-RAM BOX is not silent, as it has a built-in cooling fan.
