SanDisk Vaulter Disk - PCI Express Flash-based Accelerator

SanDisk has unveiled a new product that may increase the performance of your computer. The SanDisk Vaulter Disk drops into a PCI Express slot and has up to 16GB of fast flash-based buffer memory for frequently accessed files.

With SanDisk’s Vaulter Disk, which is a flash-based PCI Express module, both laptop and desktop computer manufacturers are able to harness the speed of embedded flash memory for frequently accessed files while continuing to use a spinning hard drive for bulk storage of less frequently accessed data. The Vaulter Disk requires only enough memory to host the computer’s operating system and selected optional user data that is benefited by the faster access time using flash memory. The hard drive stores files, user-generated content and applications that do not require or benefit from faster seek times. The two drives operate in parallel, thereby increasing the overall speed and performance of the PC.

The SanDisk Vaulter Disk will be available to OEMs in early 2008 in 8GB and 16GB capacities. Pricing and performance details are unavailable.

Keep my PC running fast and efficiently.
I have searched for and tired many different types of scanners to keep my PC running fast and efficiently. Many of them are similar when it comes to picking up the same types of viruses but there is a big difference when it comes to price. Search-and-destroy Antispyware is one of the best that I’ve used so far and it’s even cheaper than some of the better known scans like Norton and similar scanners. I found the antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy to be the answer to keeping my PC like new and you can check it out for yourself at http://www.Search-and-destroy.com.
