Gigabyte’s New Motherboard Features 240GB Integrated SSD
Just a week ago, we blogged about the Gigabyte motherboard with the integrated 20GB SSD. Glenn Barber spoke about how he thought it was cool to have 20GB of space on the motherboard so that users could easily reformat without re-installing the operating system each time.
I have to admit that even I thought that was a cool new feature at the time, until the Computex 2011 show when I heard that Gigabyte will also be releasing motherboards with 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB of *integrated on-board SSD, providing a max read/write of 140MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively.
With 240GB of solid-state drive storage, some people wouldn’t even require a separate hard drive or SSD for their computer systems, all they would need is a motherboard and power supply.
Can you imagine the possibilities of shrinking computers without the need of a separate SSD? Sure, solid-state drives are already super thin, but without the need for one, allows for increased air flow and allows for the possibility of creating an ultra-slim All-In-One PC without having your computer overheat. We’ll just have to wait and see exactly how manufacturers utilize this new on-board technology.
