Netlist announces Expressvault memory expansion card

Users around the world get new digital devices on a daily basis, be it a new notebook, tablet, smartphone or a TV set. Seeing newer and newer such items every day is something that may make you really bored with technology but every once in a while there’s a new digital gizmo that offers something really new and exciting. Netlist’s new Expressvault memory expansion card seems to be one such thing.

The new Netlist memory card uses a PCI-E 3.0 x8 slot and allows users to add non-volatile memory to any computer system that has such an expansion slot. The card offers great memory performance and as such is an excellent solution for servers, high-end computers and people who work with large files and need ultra fast access to their stored data. As Netlist puts it Expressvault provides DRAM performance and NAND persistence in one place. The memory card measures 167.65 x 68.9 mm (L x H) and comes with capacities of 4 GB, 8 GB and 16 GB. It keeps the stored data with the help of a small-sized battery that can be fully recharged in just 3 minutes when the computer Expressvault is installed in is running. The battery lasts for five years but even if you remove it the stored data can survive for up to 3 months. The card also offers 250 000 IOPS of performance, 6.5 GB/sec of memory bandwidth and latency that is measured in microseconds, thus greatly outperforming modern SSDs. In addition unlike SSDs the memory chips inside Expressvault can live forever.

The new Expressvault memory expansion card by Netlist comes with a 3-year warranty and is available now. No word on pricing, though.
