Agiga Tech also shifted up to DDR4 with its latest module based on the emerging NV-DIMM class of flash-backed DRAM cards. The company sold tens of thousands of its DDR3 generation cards last year, many of them to high frequency traders and other speed demons.
Viking and others are driving the NV-DIMM concept as complementary to SSDs for a range of uses including in-memory databases and non-volatile caches. PMC took a different approach to the sector rolling out at the event a PCIe card using both DRAM and flash.
Agiga's DDR4 card uses Micron flash chips.
