Yeah I saw this a while back on another review site. I think it's a step in the right direction, but with the speed potential of DDR RAM, why develop a new piece of technology on an old standard.
1) They are using SATA-I. Why not use SATA-II? This is a major bottleneck when looking at the bandwidth capability of PC2100.
2) The battery is only sufficient to power the RAM for 16-hours when there is no AC power to the motherboard. Once that time expires, bye-bye data.
3) Multi-Channel operation is not supported. But since there's a bottleneck mentioned in #1, this is irrelevant.
4) Read/Write speed is obviously much faster than RAID-0, but in real world conditions, the difference is not as abvious. For example, it only shaved 4 seconds off XP boot time compared to a Raptor.
It's a good idea, but I'de rather see solid state drives get cheaper and faster, and a new standard be used besides SATA I/II that doesn't bottleneck its speed.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth
