+ - New device puts SSD in a DIMM slot->

Submitted by Vigile
Vigile (99919) writes "The aptly named SATADIMM from Viking Modular Solutions takes an interesting spin on the solid state craze sweeping the computing market by combining the performance of an SSD in the form factor of a memory module. The unit itself actually uses a SandForce SSD controller and draws its power from the DIMM socket directly but still connects to the computer through a SATA connection — nothing fancy like using the memory bus, etc. Performance is actually identical to other SandForce-based SSDs though the benefits for 1U servers and motherboards with dozens of DIMM slots is interesting to say the least. Likely priced outside the realm for average consumers, the SATADIMM will likely stay put in the enterprise market but represents an indicator that companies are realizing SSDs don't need to be in traditional HDD form factors."
