Since they are compatible with SLC and MLC NAND Flash memories, the controllers make possible storage ranging from 128 MByte to 16 GByte in the case of SLC and 256 MByte to 32 GByte in the case of MLC.
ATA drives are now available for a mere $.60 per Gbyte while SCSI drives cost $4.20 per Gbyte.
With proven Travan technology reliability, the Travan 40 tape drives offer up to 20 Gbytes native storage capacity (40 Gbytes compressed) while maintaining backward compatibility with the previous generation.
Performance of the encoder for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 could be more than 20 GByte per second for images loaded into GPU memory, which is two times more than PCIE-3.0 x16 bandwidth.
The military, space and automotive industries have been early adopters of the 64-bit parallel EM technology offered by Flomerics, that is now allowing these users to undertake detailed and complex calculations they were not able to perform before and break the inherent 2 Gbyte model limit of 32-bit architecture.
The hardware chosen includes a Hewlett-Packard Netserver LX Professional with duel 200 MHz Pentium II processors, three 9.1 Gbyte hard drives arranged in a RAID configuration, and a 40 Gbyte tape drive.
