Viking Modular’s SATADIMM jacks an SSD into your memory slot

Explaining the differences between DRAM and non-volatile storage is about to get that little bit harder, thanks to Viking Modular. The company’s decided to “borrow” the DIMM form factor for its latest enterprise SSD offering, equipping it with a 240-pin array to draw power from your spare memory slots. Of course, you’ll still need to hook up a SATA cable to get data flowing to this SSD — at a very respectable 260MBps for both read and write — but we must admit we’re in love with the very idea of it.
